This note is to correct errata in the paper “Analytical Solution for the Lifetime of a Spherical Shell of Arbitrary Thickness Under the Pressure of Corrosive Environments: The Effect of Thermal and Elastic Stresses” published in Journal of Applied Mechanics, Vol. 88, p. 061004 (2021), doi: 10.1115/1.4050280.

In Sec. 3.2, the second inequality after Eq. (14) should be written as $Tα≤min{Γr−(η*),ΓR(η0)}<0$ for Δp > 0 and as Tα ≤ ΓR(η*) < 0 for Δp < 0, where $Γr−(η0)$ is the right-hand side of Eq. (14).

In Sec. 5.2.2, in Eq. (30): The multiplier η at the beginning of the integrand, should be replaced by η−1; the factor mr should be replaced by ηmr. Equations (31) and (32) should read as follows: function J(η) should be replaced by r0J(η) at $vr0=0$ and by R0J(η) at $vR0=0$.

In Sec. 5.3, in Eq. (35) and its analog for b = 0 (the formula above Eq. (36)): function J(η) should be replaced by (−1)J(η).

Please accept our apologies for the misprints.
