This Wall Pressure Vessels


 Model Description These physical models demonstrate basic principles underlying the behavior of thin-walled pressure vessels (TWPVs).  Two models of TWPVs are used to explain forces inside of TWPVs.  This demonstration should take 10-15 minutes. Engineering Principle The basic derivation for TWPV behavior (when ) states that for a cylindrical pressure vessel: where the hoop stress […]
