The paper deals with the optimal strength design of the belt chamber compound vessel of mixed construction, consisting of the matrix made of sintered carbide, supporting steel ring, and outer wound supporting cylinder. The maximum stress of all components being equal to the design stresses, the effective stress distribution in wound cylinder is uniform. Outer radius of the wound part is taken as an objective function. The set of transcendental equations has been derived to calculate all necessary geometrical parameters and their discussion was carried out.
