Question: Figure P8 20 illustrates the connection of a cylinder

Figure P8–20 illustrates the connection of a cylinder head to a pressure vessel using 10 bolts and a confined-gasket seal. The effective sealing diameter is 150 mm. Other dimensions are: A = 100, B = 200, C = 300, D = 20, and E = 25, all in millimeters. The cylinder is used to store gas at a static pressure of 6 MPa. ISO class 8.8 bolts with a diameter of 12 mm have been selected. This provides an acceptable bolt spacing. What load factor n results from this selection?
