THIN CYLINDER
If the wall thickness is less than about 7% of the inner
diameter then the cylinder may be treated as a thin one.
Thin walled cylinders are used as boiler shells,pressure
tanks, pipes and in other low pressure pocessing
equipments.
Ingeneral three types of stresses are developed in pressure
cylinders viz.
Circumferential or Hoop stress, Longitudinal stress in
closed end cylinders and Radial stresses.

In a thin walled cylinder the circumferential
stresses may be assumed to be constant over the
wall thickness and stress in the radial direction
may be neglected for the analysis. Considering
the equilibrium of a cut out section the
circumferential stress and longitudinal stress can
be found.

2. Longitudinal Stress (s
L
) – This stress is directed along the
length of the cylinder. This is also tensile in nature and tends
to increase the length.
r
) – It is compressive in nature.
Its magnitude is equal to fluid pressure on the inside wall and
zero on the outer wall if it is open to atmosphere.
1. Hoop or Circumferential Stress (s
C
) – This is directed along the
tangent to the circumference and tensile in nature.  Thus, there
will be increase in diameter.
