UNIT I

INTRODUCTION

9

Methods for determining stresses – Terminology and Ligament Efficiency – Applications

UNIT II

STRESSES IN PRESSURE VESSELS

9

Introduction – Stresses in a circular ring, cylinder –Dilation of pressure vessels, Membrane stress Analysis of Vessel – Cylindrical, spherical and, conical heads – Thermal Stresses – Discontinuity stresses in pressure vessels.

UNIT III

DESIGN OF VESSELS

9

Design of Tall cylindrical self-supporting process columns – Supports for short vertical vessels – Stress concentration at a variable Thickness transition section in a cylindrical vessel, about a circular hole, elliptical openings. Theory of Reinforcement – Pressure Vessel Design.

UNIT IV

BUCKLING AND FRACTURE ANALYSIS IN VESSELS

9

Buckling phenomenon – Elastic Buckling of circular ring and cylinders under external pressure – collapse of thick walled cylinders or tubes under external pressure – Effect of supports on Elastic Buckling of Cylinders – Buckling under combined External pressure and axial loading.

UNIT V

PIPING

9

Introduction – Flow diagram – piping layout and piping stress Analysis.
