Abstract

Internal pressure as a loading mode concerns numerous engineering applications and technological processes. The present account deals with the material, the continuum, and the structural level. In addition to the stressing aspect, internal pressure is considered as the driving force in certain metal forming operations. The presentation of the subject bases on established solutions, less known results and technological applications.
