Abstract : Efforts are reviewed on the problem of designing the intersection of a cone coaxial with a cylinder under hydrostatic pressure loading. During the early stages of this program a number of configurations of particular interest to the Bureau of Ships were analyzed using a combination of photoelasticity and theoretical analysis. The purpose was to evaluate intersection configurations which represented designs in existence or planned for the immediate future. A detailed survey is reported of the total program since its inception. During this time basic engineering concepts were developed which would be useful in evolving details of cone-cylinder intersections. These include the development of the two-dimensional experimental procedure combined with three-dimensional theory as a general method of analysis of intersection details, and the procedures for generating an optimum design of a cone-cylinder intersection with and without rings.
