"The object of this thesis is to design a means of closing the ends of thin aluminum alloy tubing in the 1” O.D. to 2” O.D. by .035 to .065 inch thick sizes, so that the closure will withstand internal hydrostatic pressure sufficient to burst the tube along the longitudinal element.
The aim is to approach the ultimate mechanical efficiency possible, and at the same time to keep actual production in mind.…
Summarizing the aims of this investigation, it can be said that the objectives of this investigation are:
- To design ends for closed vessels.
- To form the designs.
- To compare different closed vessel ends from the production and market point of view.
- To try to find out the behavior and efficiency by analytical means and actual tests"--Introduction, pages 1, 3.
