# Pressure Vessel Design

**
The horizontal pressure vessel shown below is 60 ft long, 10 ft in diameter, and has an internal pressure of 250
psig. The shell material is SA 515-70 plate with a thickness of 1.0 inches. The pressure vessel weight used in the
stress analysis is 343524 lbs, which is the combined weight of the pressure vessel and the internal volume filled
with water. The pressure vessel's stress analysis can be found by clicking on the stress failure icon on the right
side of this page.**

**
The Pressure Vessel was designed using SolidWorks, and the 'Pressure Vessel Handbook, 9th Edition which is
based on ASME Section VIII, Division 1. The design methods for supports on horizontal pressure vessels uses
equations based on the analysis by L.P. Zick. **
