Abstract:

An experimental investigation was made of closures and penetrations for pressure vessels of composite construction designed for deep depths. A method is presented for designing reinforcement for penetrations through hemispherical closures to provide membrane boundaries. Test results indicate that no serious difficulty is involved in closing as well as penetrating cylindrical hulls of composite construction. Author
