The Use of Semi-Graphical Methods in the Stress and Deformation Analysis of Shell Forms

The modern shell structure has to withstand internal and external pressures together with forces acting on the surfaces over relatively small areas. The advent of the large containment vessels in thc field of Nuclear Power Engineering (for example the Dounreay Sphere) introduced the need for a closer examination of the stresses andeformations In regions such as the sphere to cylindrical skirt connection and in the vicinity of lugs and various other attachments to the shell. The variety and relative complexity of the design problems encountered call for a flexible method capable of application to stress and deformation analysis over a wide field. A. S. Tooth and J. D. W.
