## Thickness of Flat Plate Cover or Head Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Thickness of Flat Plate Head = (Edge Fixity Constant*Diameter of Plate)*((Design Pressure/Design Stress)^0.5)
th = (C*D)*((Pv/Fc)^0.5)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Edge Fixity Constant- Edge Fixity Constant means how much rotation is restrained at support. When full rotation is restrained, it is called Fixed connection.
Diameter of Plate - Diameter of Plate is any straight line segment that passes through the center of the plate and whose endpoints lie on the plate. (Measured in Meter)
Design Pressure - Design pressure is the maximum pressure that the system that can be exposed to and sets the system relief valve at the same pressure. (Measured in Megapascal per Square Metre)
Design Stress - Design stress is the stress in which the factor of safety can be incurred. (Measured in Megapascal)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Edge Fixity Constant: 0.4 --> No Conversion Required
Diameter of Plate: 10 Meter --> 10 Meter No Conversion Required
Design Pressure: 150 Megapascal per Square Metre --> 150000000 Pascal per Square Metre (Check conversion here)
Design Stress: 25 Megapascal --> 25000000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
th = (C*D)*((Pv/Fc)^0.5) --> (0.4*10)*((150000000/25000000)^0.5)
Evaluating ... ...
th = 9.79795897113271
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
9.79795897113271 Meter --> No Conversion Required
9.79795897113271 Meter <-- Thickness of Flat Plate Head
(Calculation completed in 00.016 seconds)
