Abstract:

Elastic stress istributions at the junction of a pressure vessel which consists of a short circular cylindrical shell section with ellipsoidal head closures are developed on the basis of Loves classical shell theory. This brief study is facilitated by assuming uniform shell thickness throughout the pressure vessel. A typical example was carried out, and the results were compared to those obtained by using the formulas of Timoshenko, S. and Woinowsky-Krieger, S.Theory of Plates and Shells, mcGraw-Hill, Inc., NYC, 2 ed, 1959.
