Vonmises and Stress intensity of cylinder w/ internal and external pressure and Compressive load

Vonmises and Stress intensity of cylinder w/ internal and external pressure and Compressive load

Vonmises and Stress intensity of cylinder w/ internal and external pressure and Compressive load

(OP)
Hi All,

Hope somebody could clear my doubts.
I'm looking to calculate the von mises equivalent stress (using distortion energy theory)and primary membrane stress intensity for a cylinder with internal and external pressure and with a compressive load on one sides as shown below.



So, for calculating the von mises equivalent stress using distortion energy theory, I used negative for calculating all three principal streses as the cylinder will be in compression with internal and external pressure. Hope this is right?
Principal stresses:
Longitudinal stress -> negative (-)
Tangential stress -> negative (-)
Radial Stress -> negative (-)

But for calculating the stress intensity under such compression load, should the stress values be negative as well?
Primary membrane stress intensity:
Longitudinal stress -> ?
Tangential stress -> ?
Radial Stress -> ?

Stress intensity happens at a localized point unlike Von mises stress, but I'm not sure what to use in the formula + or - to obtain the stress values. Sorry but I am new to pressure vessel design. I appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Hanson

Your situation is either extremely theoretical to the point of smelling like a school assignment, or you have a situation that I cannot fathom. Can you provide some additional context to your situation?

Hi,

A fluid pressure of 10000 psi is acting on the inner and outer wall of the cylinder. The cylinder is fixed at one end as shown and the other end
experiences a compressive force of 95000 lbf.
I just want to know whether,

1) three principal stresses ie., the longitudinal, tangential and radial stresses will be negative as the cylinder is in compression ?
2) how to calculate the stress intensities of the cylinder in compression. i used roarks formula to calculate the stress intensities, Table 13.5, Case 1b
but as the cylinder is in compression, im not sure if the three stress components must be negative?


Thanks.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
White Paper - The Other Side of Design for Assembly
Assembly level constraints need to be satisfied before the design can move downstream. This white paper will go through the various assembly level issues, which need to be tackled by various organizations on a regular basis. Know more about DFMPro, a design for assembly software. Download Now
