The objective of this paper is the further investigation of the shell intersection problem. The pad reinforced nozzle connections of the cylindrical vessel under internal and external loads are investigated using elastic–plastic analysis and the stress analysis in intersecting shells (SAIS) special-purpose computer program. The method for determining the plastic limit load based on the maximum criterion of the rate of the change of the relative plastic work and program module LOAD_PL for its realization are presented. The results of comparisons with the twice elastic-slope (TES) method were considered for determining the plastic limit load using known experimental data for models of a pad reinforced cylindrical vessel with a radial nozzle under a transverse force. The results of a parametric study of unreinforced and pad reinforced vessel models with a nozzle under internal pressure, in-plane moment, and out-plane moment loadings are discussed.
