Calculate Gauge Pressure Inside A Tank And Maximum Shearing Stress In The Wall Of Tank

Question

A cylindrical storage tank used to transport gas under pressure has an inner diameter of 24in and wall thickness of 3/4in. Strain gauges attached to the surface of the tank in transverse and longitudinal directions indicate strains measurements of 255 × 10-6 and 60 × 10-6 in/in respectively. The material used in the tank is a 0.2%C hardened steel (Table B-17, Riley);

Determine

a. The gauge pressure inside the tank.

b. The principal stresses.

c. The maximum shearing stress in the wall of the tank.

Summary

The question belongs to Physics and it discusses about calculation of gauge pressure inside of a tank, the principal stresses of the tank and the maximum shearing stress in the wall of the tank.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
