Homework Help: Radial/Hoop stress in a steel turbine disc

  1. Dec 21, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    -given in question

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I am bit confused with the boundary conditions of this problem. I understand the radial stress is zero on the inside diameter and the radial stress on the outside diameter will be the reaction to the centripetal force per m^2. So surely you need a width to calculate the radial stress on the outside diameter which isn't given in the question?
