Thin Walled Cylinder Stress Calculator

There are three primary mechanical stresses that can be applied to a spherical or cylindrically shaped object:

- Hoop Stress
- Axial Stress
- Radial Stress

If the object/vessel has walls with a thickness less than one-tenth of the overall diameter, then these objects can be assumed to be ‘thin-walled’ and the following equations be used to estimate the stresses:

- Cylinder Hoop Stress,
- Cylinder Axial Stress,
- Sphere Hoop Stress,
- Radial Stress,

In a sphere, hoop stress and axial stress have the same value.
