Abstract: Inflatable materials find a wide range of applications in structural field as they are light, strong, anti-corrosive and can be moulded in any shape. Due to it’s advantage of light weightiness and ease of transportability, inflatable has been the area of research since our past and more over it has been attracted even today’s genesis toward itself in its commercial application, civilian applications as well as in defence too. This paper focuses on determination of deformation and stresses for inflatable cylinder under various conditions by using ANSYS 14.5.
