To meet the design and loading requirements of VIII-1 and VIII-2, many design equations, charts, tables, and curves for standard pressure components, such as shells and heads, are provided. There are rules for some special components with different geometries and arrangements which require additional consideration. The components considered in this chapter are in both VIII-1 and VIII-2 with the main difference being the allowable stresses and VIII-2 not containing some of the details given in VIII-1. For those details not contained in the sections referenced below, U-2(g) & UG-22 of VIII-1 and Chapter 5 of VIII-2, Design by Analysis,...
