Description

The Thin Cylinder Apparatus permits the investigation of stresses and strains in a thin cylinder under internal pressure. The thin walled alloy cylinder, supported by a cradle is mounted on a base board together with the hydraulic hand pump for pressurising the system.

Two stress conditions are available:

  1. Open ends – circumferential stress.
  2. Closed ends – bi-axial stress.

The cradle is designed to quickly allow the selection of either condition.

Six strain gauges are fitted to the cylinder to permit the measurement of surface strains at various angles.

A pressure gauge indicates the cylinder pressure.
