    Non-uniform pressure load (Pressure Vessel)

    Ben Morrell

      Hello everyone,

       

      I'm basically having problems figuring out the 'Y+' coefficient for a non-uniform pressure inside a vessel.The vessel itself is 14 meteres tall with hemispherical ends (2m radius). It is filled with liquid carbon dioxide (density = 1015 kg/m^3) to 11 meteres, the space above is pressurised at 21 bar. How do I determine the 'Y+' coefficient?

       

      Thank you.
