 Truncated Cone Stress and Deflection

Deflection and Stress by Uniform loading on the horizontal projected area; tangential top edge support.

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/in2)
v = Poisson's ratio
w = Applied force load (lbs/in2)
σ1,2 = stress, (lbs/in2)
R = Large radius (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;
