PD 6433:1969

Guide to the application of stress analysis to design

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : June 1969



Is intended to assist designers in assessing the margin of safety in a pressure vessel by the use of stress analysis and a knowledge of the properties of the material of construction. The use of elastic analysis, limit analysis, shakedown analysis and elasto-plastic analysis are discussed particularly in reference to their application in BS 1515 and the ASME Pressure Vessel Code Section III. A list of references is included.
