Spherical Hoop Stress Thin-wall Section Formula

\(\large{ \sigma_s = \frac{ p \; r }{ 2 \; t } }\)   

pv cylindrical hoop stress 2Where:

\(\large{ \sigma_s }\)  (Greek symbol sigma) = spherical hoop stress

\(\large{ r }\) = radius to point of intrest

\(\large{ t }\)  (Greek symbol sigma) = wall thickness

\(\large{ p }\) = internal pressure
