Question

A spherical tank has been fabricated by bolting together two hemispherical thin shells with a thickness of 30mm. The pressure in the tank is 1.7 MPa. The tank inner diameter is 8m and is sealed with 900 bolts, each with a diameter of 25mm.

What is the normal stress developed in the tank wall and in each bolt?
