**Q1. A cylindrical shell is 3 m long, 1.5 m internal diameter and 20 mm metal thickness. Calculate the intensity of maximum shear stress induced and the change in dimensions of the shell and change in volume of the shell ifit is subjected to an internal pressure of 2 N/mm**^{2}.

**Q5. Derive the equations for circumferential stress and volumetric strain in a thin spherical shell under internal pressure. **

**Ans. A. Circumferential Stress: **

- 1. Fig. shows a thin spherical shell of internal diameter d and thickness and subjected to an internal fluid pressure p.
- 2. The fluid inside the shell has a tendency to split the shell into two hemispheres along X-X axis.
- 3. The force (F) which has a tendency to split the shell

- 4. The area resisting this force = 𝝅dt
- 5. Hoop or circumferential stress (𝝈
_{c}) induced in the material of the shell is given by.

The stress 𝝈_{c} is tensile in nature.

- 6. The fluid inside the shell is also having tendency to split the shell into two hemispheres along Y-Y axis. Then it can be shown that the tensile hoop stress will also be equal to pd/4t. Let this stress is 𝝈
_{l}.

**B. Volumetric Strain **

2. Taking the differential of the above equation,

4. Substituting this value in eq. (4.7.1), we get

**Q6. Discuss about the stresses induced in the compound thick cylindrical shells.**

**Ans. A. Stresses in Compound Thick Cylindrical Shells: **

- 1. Both the inner and outer shells of the compound shell will experience hoop tensile stress when it is under internal pressure.
- 2. The resultant strains are more or less consistent as a result of both the initial stresses and those brought on by internal pressure.
- 3. Now consider a compound thick cylindrical shell made up of two tubes as shown in Fig.

- 5. Now that the outside tube is exerting pressure on the inner shell, or in other words before the fluid under pressure is admitted into the inner shell, the Lame’s equations can be used with ease.

**a. For Inner Tube: **

**b. For Outer Tube: **

- 6. The values of a
