Abstract : The report contains: (1) Bore and outer surface stress and strain data for tubes, loaded with an axially symmetric approximately semi-infinite uniform bore pressure, and having wall ratios of 1.25, 1.50, 1.75, 2.00, 2.25, and 2.50; (2) A formula for use in analyzing and interpolating the stress and strain data; (3) Formulae for determining the influence of heat on strains; (4) Formulae for stress concentration and influence of crack depth on bursting pressure.
