Huge tanker implodes and gets crushed

This is what happens when you don't let the gas escapes from the tank properly. It gets crushed like a tin can under all the pressure the gas creates. Remember that next time you are emptying your supertanker.

    And so, it is done. We are all now certified Jivamukti Yoga Teachers. Or, as our mentor Alanna named us, "certified Jivamukti rock stars." It flew by so quickly and now its all over. Everyone is packing up this morning and heading out. But, as Alanna beautifully said last night, we are now part of one big extended family, spanning the entire world.

    back home for a day or two... that is not being crushed... crushed would mean the pressure out side the container was higher than inside... it looked like a vacume demo... yep my kirby times twenty five thousand...

    " It gets crushed like a tin can under all the pressure the gas creates. " Jesus, neither one of you ignorant fuckers seized very much in grammar school physics did you? The atmosphere -- the same one wasted every day on you two asswipes -- is what crushed the fucking tank car.

    Easy to duplicate this effect, take a coke can and fill it half way full with water then put it in an oven for a hour or so on 350 deg. and then Take it out with oven mitts and pour out the water and watch what happins.

    I can't believe all you 6th grade graduates don't know the differance between an implode and explode. That tanker imploded. That happens when there is a negitve preasue inside the tank. Obviously this was staged and the only way to implode that tank is to apply a vacume (suck out all the air) to the tank. I bet that suction would suck anything out of anyone. Pervs!

    If you look close you can see the vacume hose under the tanker. The tank is made out of 3/8" steel. nimrods

    "That happens when there is a negitve preasue inside the tank. " Negative pressure? And you're lecturing on physics? You stupid fucking bastard is "negative pressure" something along the lines of a partial vacuum? The only "negative pressure" is the one between your ears. You oughta get "HI DAD" tattooed on your ass.

    you are all wrong. whats happens is the tank is cleaned with boiling water to sanitize it. Then when the tank is sealed too early, i.e. before all the steam is let out, the steam cools down, and when it reaches 212 degrees turns back into water imediatly condensing over 100x smaller. This in-turn creates a vacume crushing the can because the greater outside air preasure.

    don't even try to say Im wrong. Im an engineering student at WSU, and have done research on this topic.

    I've done research on this topic too, but it was for fun to see how much i could crunk in an empty 2 liter bottle by sucking the air out of it. I think greg j. has the original correct answer. there is no such thing as greater outside air pressure, it has nothing to do with it. the gas inside is expanding and wants to escape, so under the immense pressure, top blows off in the second view and the rapid expanding escaping gas sucks the tank in. just like when you pop a balloon, or if you shake a coke bottle and open it. There must of been an accident one time where they didin't expect that to happen and it did. That hose at the bottom of the tank must of been pumping gas in the tank, and the top blew off

    The fucking tank was put under a vacuum and it finally reached the point of implosion . The amount of vacumm needed to do this depends on the wall thickness , design , and volume of the object being imploded . As a general rule , objects with a higher degree of flat surface area are easier imploded than rounded objects such as a tanker . And scottrhs , you'd better quit smoking weed before your engineering class or find a different colledge buddy !

    Shit, might as well join the debate and disagree with everyone. I think this is vacuum compaction as i don't think there was a detonation. Containers are always designed to withstand outward pressure but rarely inward pressure so suck all the air out and it folds like a paper cup.
