DESIGN OF THIN PRESSURE VESSELS FOR MECHANICAL ENGINEERS

  DESIGN OF THIN PRESSURE VESSELS FOR MECHANICAL ENGINEERS Thin vessels are common to process industries. Examples of thin vessels are LPG cylinder, boiler and distillation column. Stresses are uniform in a thin shell. Radial stress is neglected as compared to hoop and longitudinal stresses. Most common material of construction is flange quality steel. These…
