An excellent web based tool for cylindrical shell thickness calculation under internal

pressure. It also gives allowable Stress of material at a desired design temperature. This and
many other tool for Pressure Vessel design as per ASME Section VIII Div. 1 would be useful
for Static Equipment Engineer.

Cylinder thickness calculation is based on para UG-27 of ASME Section VIII Division 1 2011
edition code book.

Where in cylinder thickness due to circumferential stress is given by:

t = P * R/(2SE 0.6P)

t = Cylinder thickness in corroded condition
P = Design pressure
R = Cylinder Inside radius in corroded condition
S = Maximum Allowable Stress at design temperature
E= Joint Efficiency

This tool also calculate cylinder thickness on OD basis as per Appendix 1-1 of ASME Section
VIII Div. 1, which is
t = P * Ro/(SE + 0.4P)

Ro = Cylinder outside diameter
