Pressure in a corner

Unread postAuthor: biggsauce » Sat Jul 05, 2008 3:18 pm

Does anyone take into consideration the effects of pressure in a corner when building a hybrid cannon? After all, you don't see any production vessels that are square.

Granted, Many hybrids on the site are comprised of standard pipe fittings which are affordable and easy to find. Those of you who have more custom built/machined chambers, why not try semi-spered ends on a chamber? It is the fact that curved ends are hard to come by? Or is it that the effects of pressure in a corner are negligible in this application?
