Pressure Vessels: External Pressure Technology by Carl T F Ross
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This up-to-date account of technology of external pressure vessels discusses problems of buckling walls of submarine hulls, torpedoes, aircraft, space shuttles and missiles, underwater storage vessels, oil drilling rigs, grain storage silos, cooling towers, valves, tunnels, immersed tubes, and even tin can containers of food and everyday products. Stress analysts, designers, consultants, manufacturers and consultants need to take account of external pressures on descending submarines, ascending or descending rockets, aircraft and space shuttles by devising counter-measures in structural design and materials. Professor Ross covers the problem, remediation, practical applications, experiments and theory, plastic collapse, and also provides valuable design charts.
