A Review of the Fatigue and fracture of Thick-Walled Pressure Vessels

  • B. Crossland

Abstract

An extensive literature exists relative to the design and construction of high-pressure vessels which has recently been reviewed by Pugh and Crossland [1]. In this paper attention will be limited to vessels of relatively simple construction such as monobloc vessels, compound vessels, and vessels with static fluid support. These are predominently used in industry and in many high-pressure research programs. More complex constructions such as vessels with dynamic fluid support or sectored vessels are much less commonly used, and consequently will not be considered in this review.
