Re: Define walls as thick plate

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I asume you are asking about thin vs think wall cylinders?  If so................

The cutoff for thick vs thin wall modelling that I was taught is   thin wall  R / t  > 10

check out this link

wrt "wall behavior";  the wall behaves as it will, the only difference is how we model it

The thin wall assumption allows the use of simplier model that gives pretty good results for R / t > 10.and higher

Go below R / t = 10 and the model gives a less accurate picture of the true stress state.

My question is what is the limit for wall thickness to can consider the wall as thin or thick plate.and what is the effect of this definition on the wall behavior. i know this effect on the plate bending element .it will transmit the load as a very rigid element ( tension in one side and compression in another side ). but i think that is not valid for walls .so i need information about this subject
thanks for all
