Cone Cylinder Stress and Deflection Filled to Depth with Liquid Tangential Edge Support Equation and Calculator. Per. Roarks Formulas for Stress and Strain for membrane stresses and deformations in thin-walled pressure vessels.

 Cone Cylindrical At any level y below the liquid surface y < d

Meridional Stress Circumferential or Hoop Stress  Change in height dimension y Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position At any level y above the liquid level

Note: There is a discontinuity in the rate of increase in fluid pressure at the top of the liquid. This leads to some bending in this region and is indicated by a discrepancy in the two expressions for the meridional slope at y = d.)

Meridional Stress Circumferential or Hoop Stress
σ2 = 0 Change in height dimension y Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position
Where used:
E = Modulus of Elasticity (lbs/in2)
v = Poisson's ratio
δ = Liquid density (lbs/in3)
σ1,2 = stress, (lbs/in2)
y = At some level of the cone (in)
d = Liquid fill level, (in)
t = Wall thickness (in)
α = Angle (deg.)
ψ = Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position, positive when that meridional rotation represents an increase in ΔR when y or θ increases;
