STRESSES IN PRESSURIZED CIRCULAR SHELLS WITH DISCONTINUITIES, WITH OR WITHOUT STIFFENERS

This paper is a summary of a series of five research programs dealing with the experimental determination of stresses, strains, and displacements in circular cylinders subjected to pressure. The vessels have either constant thickness or transverse reinforcing ribs. Circular holes, with either plain or reinforced edges, are located in different positions of the vessels. The methods used for the analysis are: brittle coatings, three-dimensional photoelasticity ("freezing" technique), and electrical and mechanical strain gages. The most important results are summarized in a table. These results will be of interest to designers of underwater ships and of pressure vessels in general.
