    A cylindrical steam boiler shell is of riveted construction. It is made from plates 18mm thick, and has a diameter of 1.8m. Calculate the circumferential and longitudinal stresses in the plates when the internal pressure is 800kNm(sq). If the ultimate tensile stress of the material used is 600MN/m(sq), and the efficiency of the longitudinal joint is 70 per cent, determine the factor of safety?

    Do see the forum guiddlines, and don't just post questions expecting somebody to come along and do them for you - it's against forum rules for a start.

    What have you done/tried? What are your thoughts? Where are you stuck?
