Analysis of Pressure Vessel Manufacturing Technology Development


Article Preview

With the rapid development of modern industry, pressure vessel technology has been widely applied in research and industrial production, and some of pressure vessels have been required under more harsh applied conditions such as severe bearing loads and large-sizes, making higher demands on the manufacturing and security for them. This paper outlines the various pressure cylinder structures that have emerged in history and their evolution processes, and proposes a reasonable interlocking steel strip wound cylinder and analyses its structural characteristics. It can not only resolve the issue of the axial bearing load of the winding cylinder well but also be manufactured economically
