    am stuck on this question.

    A thick cylinder in which the outside diameter is three times the inside diameter is subjected to an internal pressure of 80 N/mm2.

    The material has a yield stress in simple tension of 400 N/mm2 and Poisson’s ratio n = 0∙3.
    Calculate the factors of safety for the three theories of elastic failure

    how do i find the radius without being given any dimensions. use lames line but i would need the radius still right?

    am lost on this

    Yeah I don't see how you can do this without knowing an actual dimension of the vessel either.
