The Axial Stress on a Cylinder calculator compute the axial This equation assumes the inside pressure Po = 0.(σa) on the outer wall end caps of a closed cylindrical pressure vessel.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Axial Stress on a Cylinder (σa): The calculator returns thein newtons per square centimeter. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
σa = P • (ri²) / (ro² - ri²)
