Controlled destructive testing of shells or pressure vessels by the hydrostatic method discussed in this report provides a good means of analyzing the failure modes of these structures. The technique described allows a test to be halted at any point - even before permanent deformation has occurred. This technique also has merit for testing pressure vessels made of ceramic or other brittle material, where rupture normally reduces the vessel to a powder or to numerous small fragments. Author
