Question 6.102 A spherical pressure vessel of …

TRANSF PROBLEMS 6.100 Determine the normal stress in a basketball of 12-in. diameter and 0.1-in. wall thickness which has been inflated to a gage pressure of 15 psi. 6.101 A spherical gas container made of steel is 20 ft in diameter and has a uniform wall thickness of 16 in. Knowing that the internal pressure is 75 psi, deter mine the maximum normal stress and the maximum shearing stress in the con aine 6.102A spherical pressure vessel of 1.2-m outside diameter is to be fabri- cated-from a steel having an ultimate stress ?U_ 450 MPa Knowing that a factor of safety of 4.0 is desired and that the gage pressure may reach 3 MPa, determine the smallest wall thickness which may be used 6.103 The maximum gage pressure is known to be 7 MPa in a 300-mm
