"During the last twenty-five years a very large research effort has been directted to the theoreticfal and experimental stress analysis of pressure vessels and pressure vessel components. In many cases pressure vessels and components are designed to the requirements of a standard or code of practice, but it is becoming increasingly important for designers to carry out separate analyses of various design details. This book presents a survey of the major contributions to the subject which have appeared in different publications." ; Vol. 3
