## Effective Thickness of Conical Head Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Effective Thickness = Thickness*(cos(Apex Angle))
te = t*(cos(A))
This formula uses 1 Functions, 3 Variables
Functions Used
cos - Trigonometric cosine function, cos(Angle)
Variables Used
Effective Thickness - (Measured in Meter) - Effective Thickness of the slab that carries a constant stress distribution σmax equal to the maximum value of the actual stress distribution σ.
Thickness - (Measured in Meter) - Thickness is the distance through an object.
Apex Angle - (Measured in Radian) - Apex angle is the angle between the lines that define the apex which is pointed tip of a cone.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Thickness: 1.2 Meter --> 1.2 Meter No Conversion Required
Apex Angle: 45 Degree --> 0.785398163397301 Radian (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
te = t*(cos(A)) --> 1.2*(cos(0.785398163397301))
Evaluating ... ...
te = 0.848528137423982
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.848528137423982 Meter -->848.528137423982 Millimeter (Check conversion here)
848.528137423982 Millimeter <-- Effective Thickness

## Effective Thickness of Conical Head Formula

Effective Thickness = Thickness*(cos(Apex Angle))
te = t*(cos(A))

A head is one of the end caps on a cylindrically shaped pressure vessel. Vessel dished ends are mostly used in storage or pressure vessels in industry. These ends, which in upright vessels are the bottom and the top, use less space than a hemisphere (which is the ideal form for pressure containments) while requiring only a slightly thicker wall.
