Hoop Stress Thin Wall (Longitudinal) Formula

\(\large{ \sigma_z = \frac{ p \; d_m }{ 4 \; t } }\)   


\(\large{ \sigma_z }\)  (Greek symbol sigma) = longitudinal stress (axial)

\(\large{ d_m }\) = mean diameter of the cylinder or tube

\(\large{ t }\)  (Greek symbol sigma) = wall thickness of the cylinder or tube

\(\large{ p }\) = internal pressure in the cylinder or tube
