Question: the cylindrical gas tank is made from a36 steel with...

Question details

The cylindrical gas tank is made from A-36 steel with a yield strength ơyeld-250 MPa, and it has an inner diameter of 1.5 m and a wall thickness of 21 mm. Using (a) the maximum-shear-stress theory, and (b) the maximum-distortion-energy theory, determine if the tank is able to withstand an internal pressure of 5 MPa without yielding. Use a factor of safety against yielding of 1.5. (30p)
