### Stress Analysis of Thin-Walled Pressure Vessels

Jan 15 2015 · Spherical Pressure Vessel like the one shown in Fig ure 1 is preferred for storage of high pressure fluids. A spherical pressure vessel has approximately twice the strength of a cylindrical pressure vessel with the same wall thickness. A sphere is a very strong structure. The distribution of stresses on the spheres surfaces both i n-

Spherical vessels will always need a thinner wall than a cylinder for any given diameter and design pressure which is why very large pressure vessels tend to be spherical. Heads A cylindrical vessel head is a closure lid or cap ( Fig 2 ) of consistent material and wall thickness throughout except as described in Skirt and Knuckle below

A spherical pressure vessel has approximately twice the strength of a cylindrical pressure vessel. However a spherical shape is difficult to manufacture and therefore more expensive so most pressure vessels are cylindrical with 2 1 semi-elliptical heads or end caps on each end. Smaller pressure vessels are assembled from a pipe and two covers.
