Question:-
A thin cylinder contains fluid at a pressure of 500 N/m2, the internal diameter of the shell is 0.6 m and the tensile stress in the material is to be limited to 9000 N/m2. The shell must have a minimum wall thickness of nearly
Option (A)
9 mm
Option (B)
11 mm
Option(C)
17 mm
Option(D)
21 mm
Correct Option:
(C)
Question Solution:
s1 = (Pd/2t)
9000 = (500 x 0.6) / (2 x t)
\ t @ 0.01667m
t @ 17mm
