Forces in a container produce tensile forces in the wall. Shortening of the wall, as by the shortening of the spring at left indicated by arrows, compresses the contents (arrows pointing to the center) and produces a pressure, P. P is transmitted uniformly in all directions, tending to drive the fluid in the lumen into the wall (filtration) and compressing the layers of the wall. P also distends the vessel and tends to rend the wall, as indicated by the arrows at right, which show a stretching force on the spring.
