Abstract : Elastic stresses are presented for thin shells of revolution under the action of internal pressure. The formulas given are developed on the basis of Love's classical shell theory. The pressure vessel configurations under consideration consist of various commonly encountered head closure designs integrally joined to circular cylindrical shell sections. In addition to the membrane stresses, the bending stresses resulting from forces and moments at the junctures of the heads and cylinders are also presented. The concept of edge influence numbers is used where convenient to express the discontinuity forces and moments at the junction. Many important parameters are expressed in graphical forms to facilitate analysis.
