Description: This video lecture uses the example of an aluminium fire extinguisher to show how the principal stresses and maximum shear stress can be calculated for a thin-walled cylindrical pressure vessel. The corresponding Mohr's circle is also constructed.
Keywords: stress analysis • Mohr's circle • example • pressure vessel • thin-walled • principal stresses • maximum shear stress • fire extinguisher • aluminium • alloy
