- TL;DR Summary
- I am designing a cylindrical vacuum chamber and need to calculate the minimum wall thickness to prevent implosion.

I have an inner radius of 0.96 m, an internal pressure of 10^-9 Pa and the external pressure is atmospheric (101,325 Pa). The material has a yield stress of 355 MPa.

Is there any simple equation that can be applied here to calculate the minimum chamber wall thickness? Thanks!
