Of a Fatigued Thick-Walled Cylindrical Pipe on the Brink of Yielding


The response to stress delivered by a non-isochoric hollow cylinder is critical to its future life and integrity. The design of cylinders must emphasize durability; therefore, the knowledge of the yield stress of the constituent material is essential. The stress component of a pressurized compressible circular cylinder made of non-linearly elastic material was considered here and the yield stress was determined.
