WALL THICKNESS CALCULATION AS PER IS 7285 (part 2 ): 2004


Drawing No. : 52284480
As per IS 7285 (Part 2) : 2004 - Clause 6.3 the wall thickness of cylindrical shell of the cylinder
is calculated using the following formula :
(Working Pressure at 15°C) = 204.00 Kgf/cm²
200.00 Bar
Ph (1.3 Do² + 0.4 Di²)
f = 100 (Do² - Di²)

PARAMETERS :

1 Outside Diameter of cylinder (Do) = 279.00 mm


Inside Diameter of cylinder (Di) = mm
3 Hydrostatic Stretch test Pressure (Ph) = 340.00 Kgf/cm²
4 Max. allowable wall stress at
Hydrostatic test pressure (5/6 Re) (f) = 66.68 Kgf/mm²
5 Min. value of Yield Strength (Re) = 80.0 Kgf/mm² 785.00 N/mm²
6 Min. value of Tensile Strength (Rg) = 94.6 Kgf/mm² 928.00 N/mm²
7 Yield / Tensile strength ratio (Min.) (Re / Rg) = 0.846

Re = 80.0 kgf/mm²

f= 5/6 x 80.0 = 66.68 kgf/mm²

Ph (1.3 Do² + 0.4 Di²)


f = 100 (Do² - Di²)

340.00 (1.3 Do² + 0.4 Di²)


66.68 = ------------------------------
100 (Do² - Di²)

66.68 Do² - 66.68 Di² = Do² x 4.42 + Di² x 1.36

( 66.68 -4.42 ) Do² =( 66.68 + 1.36 ) Di²

62.26
Di² = ------------ x ( 279.00 )²
68.04

Di² = 71228.76 = Di = 266.89 mm

(Do - Di) 279.00 - 266.89


t= ---------------- = --------------------------------- = 6.06 mm
2 2

As per clause 6.3.2, IS:7285 (Part 2):2004


t = 0.136 x \/(Do) = 0.136 x \/ 279.00
t = 2.27 mm

By substituting the value of Do as 279.00 in formula 0.136 \/ Do ,


we get the value of minimum wall thickness 2.27 mm which is less than
6.06 mm, the value obtained by using above formula in clause 6.3 of IS 7285 (Part 2) : 2004.

The wall thickness 6.06 mm. meets the requirement of IS : 7285 (Part 2) : 2004 clause no. 6.3.

However, based on the nearest minimum wall thickness available from the
tube manufacturer, the wall thickness selected is 6.30 mm.
