Abstract : This paper discusses considerations in the design of ceramic pressure housings to prevent catastrophic failure of the housing under hydrostatic load. Emphasis is on trends discovered in the stability analysis, using the program BOSOR4, of cylindrical housings closed on both ends with hemispherical caps. Design of metallic rings for the joining of two or more cylindrical sections is also discussed.
