Message No. 21931, Started by curat on 12/20/12

Hi folks, this is my first post so please bear with me, I'm trying to calculate the size of a pressure vessel when there is heat applied. Say for instance I have an enclosed tank with an outlet pipe on one side. I heat the tank to 800f. The contents of the tank get incinerated. Say my outlet is 1-1/2" diameter. How much pressure in psi will come out of that outlet?
