Pressure Vessel Design Calculation (Cone)
T provides a worst case required thickness for nozzle analysis for a nozzle located on the large end of the cone and located on the long seam weld.
The UG-16(b) minimum thickness requirement has not been taken into consideration here.
Discontinuity checks which are required for each end of the cone when it is welded to a straight shell are not included in this sheet.
This sheet cannot be used to check for allowable exterior pressure loads.
This sheet is for educational use only - use at your own risk.
