Thin Wall Cylinder
Thick Wall Cylinder
σ = pr/t
where r is the inside radius and t is the wall thickness
σ = p(R
) / (R
where r is the inside radius and R is the
outside radius (r plus the wall thickness)
Generally, a cylinder is considered to be "thin-walled" if its radius r is larger than 5 times its wall thickness t (r > 5 · t).
