Cone Cylindrical |

Deflection and Stress by Tangential loading only; resultant load = P.

r must be finite to avoid infinite stress and r/t > 10 to be considered thin-walled

Meridional Stress

Circumferential Hoop Stress

Radial Displacement of Circumference

Change in height dimension y

Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position

Angle

α = tan^{-1} ( ( R-r ) / y)

Where used:

E = Modulus of Elasticity (lbs/in^{2})

*v* = Poisson's ratio

P = Applied resultant axial load (lbs)

σ_{1,2} = stress, (lbs/in^{2})

R = Large radius (in)

r = Small radius (in)

α = Angle (deg.)

ψ = Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position, positive when that meridional rotation represents an increase in ΔR when y or θ increases;
