Circumferential stresses

When building a cylindrical steel pressure vessel tank, it is imperative that you take into consideration the consequences of circumferential stresses. Stresses that act in the tangential direction to the circumference are referred to as circumferential stresses. This tension comes in at a whopping two times as much as the longitudinal stress.

Before you can determine the maximum circumferential stresses, you need to have an understanding of the stresses that are created by the membrane. Calculating the stresses brought on by the membrane loads requires looking at the equations that are presented in Section In addition to this, you need to figure out the stresses that are brought on by the discontinuity stresses at the point where the cylinder meets the head. In order to calculate the total stress, these stresses must be added to the tensions already present in the membrane.

The process of determining the maximum circumferential stresses in a cylinder is quite similar to the process of determining the maximum axial stresses. For instance, if the cylinder has a diameter of 20 inches, the point at which the axial tension is at its greatest is 0.22 inches from the intersection of the head and the cylinder. In addition, the head-cylinder junction in a cone is where you will find the greatest amount of tangential tension.
