To meet the design and loading requirements of UG-22 of VIII-1, many design equations, charts, tables, and curves for most standard components such as shells and heads are provided. However, there are some design rules for components with special geometries and configurations which require additional consideration. For VIII-2, procedures are given for design by analysis of components with special geometries. Consequently, very few rules for design of special geometries are given. This chapter contains guidance for the design of some of those special geometries in VIII-1 as follows:

(1) Braced and Stayed Construction (UG-47 through UG-50, and UW-19)

(2) Jacketed Vessels (Appendix 9)

(3) Half-pipe Jackets (Appendix EE)

(4) Vessels of Noncircular Cross Section (Appendix 13)
