For R_{2} / t > 10
Meridional Stress
Circumferential Hoop Stress
Radial Displacement of Circumference
Change in height dimension y
Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position
Where used:
E = Modulus of Elasticity (lbs/in^{2})
v = Poisson's ratio
P = Total force applied (lbs)
σ_{1,2} = Stress, (lbs/in^{2})
R_{2} = Radius (in)
R = Distance as indicated (in)
y = Depth as indicated (in), Must be equal too or less than d
t = Wall thickness (in)
θ = Angle (deg.)
θ_{o} = 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;
(Note: θ_{o} is the angle to the lower edge and cannot go to zero without local bending occurring in the shell)
