Hi guys,


I was working on a project in which my subsystem has been brought to halt for a certain issue. I would like to know how to perform stress analyis on a shell or a sheet metal body due to pressure difference between the outside and the inside of the shell. To crytallize my question you can imagine the situation to be a spherical shell having inside pressure of .7 bar and outside pressure of 1 bar. In this case what would be the stress developed in the sphere?
