I suggest checking hoop stress due to torsion against the allowable shear stress of the drum as graphically shown below. It should be a multi steps process - 1) Assume line element with thickness t and diameter d ≈ D, then solving for t. 2) From the obtained t, solve d, then check the stress again. 3) Adjust t and repeat step 2 if necessary.
