Abstract : Scale-model pressure vessels in the form of right circular cylinders were investigated under static and cyclic loading in ambient and liquid nitrogen environments. Tests were performed at various percents of the single-cycle burst strength to establish fatigue behavior. Liner concepts using a polyimide film, aluminum foil, and electro-formed aluminum were investigated. Comparisons were made of the static and dynamic fatigue life of cylinders in ambient and liquid nitrogen environments.
