Thin shells under internal pressure
6.1
Thin cylindrical shell
of
circular cross-section
A
problem in which combined stresses are present is that
of
a cylindrical shell under internalpressure. Suppose a long circular shell is subjected to an internal pressurep, which may
be
dueto a fluid or gas enclosed
wib
he cyhder, Figure
6.1.
The internal pressure acting
on
the longsides
of
the cylinder gives rise
to
a circumferential stress in the wall
of
the cylinder;
if
the ends
of
the cylinder are closed, the pressure acting
on
these ends is transmitted to the walls
of
the cylinder,thus producing a longitudinal stress in the walls.

Circumferential and longitudinalstresses in a thin cylinder with
closed

Suppose
r
is the mean radius
of
the cylinder, and that its thickness
t
is small compared with
r.
Consider a unit length
of
the cylinder remote
from
the closed ends, Figure
6.2;
suppose we cut
th~s
unit length with a diametral plane, as in Figure
6.2.
The tensile stresses acting
on
the cut sectionsare
o,,
acting circumferentially, and
02,
acting longitudinally. There is an internal pressure

the inside of the half-shell. Consider equilibrium of the half-shell in a plane perpendcular to the
axis
of the cylinder,
as
in Figure 6.3; the total force due to the internal pressure
p
in the direction
OA
is
p

because we are dealing with a unit length of the cylinder.
This
force is opposed by the stresses

for equilibrium we

We shall call

Thus the longitudinal stress,
(T~,
is only half thecircumferential stress,
0,.
The stresses acting on an element of the wall of the cylinder consist of a circumferential stress
oI,
longitudinal stress
(T~,
and a radial stressp on the internal face of the element, Figure
6.5.
As
(r/t)
s very much greater than unity,
p
is small compared with
(T]
and
02.
The state of stress in thewall of the cylinder approximates then to a simple two-dimensional system with principal stresses
