Part 1: Stresses In Spherical Vessels From Local Loads Transferred By A Pipe
Number of Pages
A method is presented for computing the stresses in a spherical vessel from radial loads and external moments transferred by a pipe, taking account of the radius and wall thickness of the pipe and of a reinforcing pad on the vessel. Also other kinds of local loadings on a spherical vessel are reviewed.
Part 2: Additional Data On Stresses In Cylindrical Shells Under Local Loading
Graphs are presented for the bending moments and membrane forces in cylindrical vessel subject to radial load or external moments at the edge and away from the loading surface. Simple design rules are given for using these graphs.
