Allowable Compressive Stress Table C-36 / C-50 (AISC-ASD-89)

The maximum allowable stress values to be used in the calculation of a vessel’s wall thickness are given in the ASME code for many different materials. These stress values are a function of temperature. Section VIII of the ASME code, which governs the design and construction of all pressure vessels with operating pressures greater than 15 psig, is published in two divisions.
