It is desired to design a cylindrical tank 600 mm outerdiameter with bolted lids. The lid is bolted to attached flange viaa bolt with M16. The tank is made from sheet metal that is 12 mm inthick and can sustain a maximum hoop (tangential) stress of165 MPa in tension. The normalstress in the bolts is to be limited to 415MPa in tension. Determine the number ofbolts needed.
