Abstract:

This report presents an analytical solution for predicting residual stresses in a steel pressure vessel wrapped with a multilayered composite jacket. The numerical results for the hoop stresses before and after complete unloading are obtained for a subscale test tube. The steel liner is elastic- plastic, and the composite layup 029024 consists of 16 layers made of graphite bismaleimide produced by Fiberite Corporation.
