I'm doing stress analysis on a circular region on this part where an o-ring seals against.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There is a 7500 PSI normal force being applied on it.

So you can think about it as an annular circular flat plate (like a washer) with the 7500 PSI force uniformally distributed on the surface.

I want to analyze things like the max bending moment & stress if it is fixed on the inside edge...

and shearing stress.

Help would be appreciated..

Also as a side note:

How would you convert that pressure (7,500 PSI) to a force per unit length versus per unit area?

Thanks
