Stress (Tangential) in Cylinder (σ): The results are returns in units of newtons per meter square (N/m2). However, these can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
The Tangential Stress in a Cylinder calculator computes the tangential stress on the inner wall of a closed cylindrical pressure vessel. The tangential stress is also sometimes called the "hoop stress" as it is the surface wall stress all the way around the cylinder. The formula for the Tangential Stress in a Cylinder is:
`sigma_"t_int" = P*(r_o^2 + r_i^2) / (r_o^2 - r_i^2)`
