Within the current design codes for boilers, piping and pressure vessels, there are many different equations for the thickness of a cylindrical section under internal pressure. A reassessment of these various formulations, using the original data, is described together with more recent developments in the state of the art. A single formula, which can be demonstrated to retain the same design margin in both the time-dependent and time-independent regimes, is shown to give the best correlation with the experimental data and is proposed for consideration for inclusion in the design codes.
