Outside Diameter: The width of the cylinder.
Design Pressure: The maximum allowable working pressure or the pressure at the safety relief valve will open.
Corrosion Allowance: The extra thickness is added to the minimum material wall thickness to compensate for the expected loss over the lifetime of the vessel.
Allowable Material Stress: The maximum allowable stress which is the tensile stress divided with 3.5 safety factor.
Min. Mat. Th. R.T.: The minimum required material thickness at Radiographic Testing level No, 3 or 2.
