Longitudinal Stress Thick-walled Section (External Pressure Only) Formula

\(\large{ \sigma_l = \frac{ - p_e \; r_e^2 }{ r_e^2 \;-\; r_i^2 }  }\)   

pv cylindrical hoop stress 2Where:

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

\(\large{ p_e }\) = external pressure

\(\large{ r_e }\) = external radius

\(\large{ r_i }\) = internal radius
