Main Question or Discussion Point
Let's say we have a solid cylinder which is fully submerged in water or any fluid having density lower than of cylinder's density. I want to find out how can we convert the buoyancy force in terms of pressure. Actually I am doing FE analysis of this kind of problem and software allows to apply pressure loads only. How can we find out the buoyancy pressure distribution along the radial hight of the cylinder. Cylinder is kept in horizontal position just as a submarine in water.
