Penultimate Static Pressure Containment Considerations and Possible Applications to Metallic Hydrogen Preparation

  • A. L. Ruoff
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 18)


It is the purpose of this presentation to consider how large a pressure can be contained in a static pressure vessel. Because the sphere is a particularly simple geometry from a theoretical viewpoint, these discussions will be confined to it.
