The Inner Diameter of Cylinder given Thickness of Boiler Shell formula is defined as the cross section of it perpendicular to the length (or height) is the portion bounded by two concentric circles. Here, AB is the outer diameter and CD is the inner diameter of the circular cross section is calculated using inner_diameter_of_cylinder = Thickness of Cylinder Wall *2* Permissible Tensile Stress
