Plastic Thick-Walled Vessel

Verification Example

A thick-walled vessel is loaded by such an inner pressure that the vessel reaches an elastic-plastic state. While neglecting self‑weight, the analytical and numerical solutions for the radial position of the plastic zone border (under the Tresca hypothesis) are determined and compared.
