# Thin Walled Cylinder Hoop Stress Calculator

Stress is the average amount of force exerted per unit area. The hoop stress is the force exerted circumferentially in both directions on every particle in the cylinder wall. To calculate hoop stress just multiply internal pressure (MPa) and internal diameter (mm), thickness (mm) with 2(two) and divide both the answer. Here is the online Thin Walled Cylinder Hoop Stress calculator which helps to calculate hoop stress of thin wall tubes, pipe, pressure vessel.

Stress is the average amount of force exerted per unit area. The hoop stress is the force exerted circumferentially in both directions on every particle in the cylinder wall. To calculate hoop stress just multiply internal pressure (MPa) and internal diameter (mm), thickness (mm) with 2(two) and divide both the answer. Here is the online Thin Walled Cylinder Hoop Stress calculator which helps to calculate hoop stress of thin wall tubes, pipe, pressure vessel.

#### Formula:

Hoop Stress = (Internal Pressure x Internal Diameter) / (2 x Thickness)

### Example

A thin walled cylindrical tube/pipe has an internal pressure of 32 Mpa, internal diameter of 11 mm and thickness of 6 mm.

#### Thin Walled Cylinder Hoop Stress

= (32 x 11) / (2 x 6)
= 29.33 Mpa
