## 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

## 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 -4.42 ) Do² =( 66.68 + 1.36 ) Di²

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

## (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.
