HIGH PRESSURE CHAMBER DESIGN

The pressure containment capability of a monobloc cylindrical chamber that remains elastic is limited by the mechanical strength of the chamber material to values of about 100,000 pounds per square inch. Higher pressures can be contained by using a shrink-fit construction or autofrettage and these techniques provide approximately twice the pressure containment capability that can be obtained with the monobloc construction. This report describes and analyzes a segmented chamber that greatly extends the high pressure capability of a cylindrical chamber in the elastic range.
