Unformatted text preview: R . The wall thickness is uniform at a value t . The length of the cylinder is L . No ﬂaws or stress concentrations are present. Dimensions are: R = 110 cm± t = 11 cm± L = 433 cm± Material properties: Young’s modulus = 200 GPa± Poisson’s ratio = 0.3± Coefﬁcient of thermal expansion = 12 µm/mK The vessel is pressurized to a design pressure P = 15.5 MPa.± Questions:± (a) What is the total (peak) stress as a function of radial position ( z ) at a junction between cylinder and hemisphere. (b) What is the maximum radial displacement of the vessel cylinder and sphere? 1...
