    Is Tresca Stress = Intensity ?

    Loic Ancian

      because I remember that Tresca is abs(P1-P2) or abs(P1-P2) or abs(P1-P2) that must be below yield stress.

       

      Intensity is only P1-P3, is it the same thing?

       

       

      When designing a pressure vessel, what stress has to be used : Tresca or Intensity.?
