Stress in Steam Boiler Shells from Boiler Pressure

Calculate stress in in steam boiler shells caused by steam pressure

Sponsored Links

The stress in a steam boiler shell can be calculated as

σ = P D / 2 t                                    (1)


σ = hoop stress (Pa, N/m2)

P = boiler pressure (Pa, N/m2)

D = diameter of boiler shell (m)

t = thickness of boiler shell (m)
