For thickness of head:
A standard dished head was chosen for simplicity and availability

th=Plw2Se

Refer to Eqn. 4-6, p.86, PED
Since:

Di = 1.50m (59.04 in)

Do=Di+2ts
Do=59.58 in

From PED, p.69

Crown radiusL=Di-6 (in in.)
L=53.04 in
kr=knuckle radius=0.06 Do
kr=3.57 in

Calculating the ratio, R = kr/L

Spinning of Alkaline Sorbed Fibers from Eichhornia Crassipes (Water Hyacinth) Stalks and
Extruded Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Bottles for the Production of Textile Yarn

R=0.07

For the value of W, from table 4-3, p.87, PED

W=1.80

With S = 3250 psi, as calculated previously, the value of the head thickness,
using the equation 4-6 of PED,

th=PLW2Se
th=0.32 in ≈8.18 mm

Use 9 mm as head thickness.
