A cylinder filled with oil is under pressure from a piston, as shown in the figure. The diameter d of the piston is 90 mm and the compressive force F is 42 kN. The maximum allowable shear stress in the wall of the cylinder is 80 MPa. What is the minimum permissible thickness tmin of the cylinder wall?
The question belongs to Mechanical Engineering and the question is about pressure vessels. The question here is about calculating the pressure and the thickness of a cylinder’s walls if a piston applies pressure inside it.
