Title:Overstraining of alloy steel thick walled cylinders
Author(s):Eichberger, L.C.; Steele, M.C.
Abstract:Experimental results are presented on the behavior of four alloy-steel cylinders (5 in. OD x 3 in. ID x 8 in. long) overstrained by internal pressure. Particular attention is given to the mechanism of yielding and the associated strains measured at various locations on the bore and outside surfaces. The behavior of the alloy steel cylinders is qualitatively the same as the previously reported mild steel and medium-carbon steel cylinders. The degree of non-homogeneity present in the cylinder tests is shown to be dependent on a material property taken from tension tests. Average bore and outside circumferential strains compare favorably with Koiter’s theory. Axial strains are essentially elastic which is also in keeping with Koiter’s theory. Circumferential strains exhibit significant creep.
