THE DESIGN OF PRESSURE VESSELS FOR EXTREME PRESSURES

The problem of supporting extreme pressures in some kind of vessel is made difficult by the fact that materials with which the vessels might be constructed have very limited tensile strengths. This means that thick sections under tension must be used. A further, and in some ways greater limitation on supporting extreme pressures inside of vessels arises from the fact that materials with high tensile strengths when subjected to stresses tend to flow. Those materials that are highly resistant to flow under stress in general have very low tensile strengths.
