Cylinder hoop (circumference) stress calculator - formula & step by step calculation to find the stress developed circumfrentially subjected to internal pressure of pipe having both closed ends, in both directions on every part of the cylinder wall. σH = (P x d)/(2 x t). Internal pressure P in Pa, cylinder inside diameter d in m & wall thickness in m are the key terms of this calculation. Exceeding this σH limit may leads to burst the pipe line.

Formula

The below mathematical formula is used in mechanical engineering to calculate the capacity of the pipe or cylinder to with stand the force or stress developed around the pipe or cylinder wall along the length due to its closed ends & the internal pressure of the pipe line system. along the longitudinal axis of the cylinder due to its closed ends & the internal pressure. Besides, the step by step calculation for each calculation performed by using this calculator let the users to know how to perform circumference stress calculation.
formula to calculate hoop (circumference) stress of a pipe

In the field of mechanical engineering, while working with oil & gas industry pipe line system, it's important to analyse capacity of the pipe line. The above formula & step by step calculation may be useful for users to understand how the values are being used in the formula to find the hoop stress σL, however, when it comes to online for quick calculations, this cylinder hoop stress calculator helps the user to perform & verify such mechanical engineering calculations as quick as possible.
