Submerged pressure shell’s corrosion situation is more serious due to bad work environment, complex structure and difficulty of maintenance. Based on the analysis of calculation method of submerged pressure shell structures with non-corrosion, the calculation formula of pressure shell with pitting corrosion is given. The Finite Element Model is constructed and its residual strength is investigated. The relationships between shell stress and some parameters, such as radius of corrosion pit, depth of corrosion pit and location of corrosion pit are studied. Based on the finite element analysis results, the effect of radius of corrosion pit on the stress of pressure shell with pitting corrosion is analyzed. Furthermore, the influence coefficients of residual strength of pressure shell due to depth and location of pitting corrosion are determined, which provide a reference for the strength evaluation of submerged pressure shell with pitting corrosion.
