Abstract : A collocation method was developed in order to describe the elastic behavior of two normally intersecting cylindrical shells. The intersecting shell (nozzle) was subjected to an axial load and the intersected shell (vessel) was simply supported at both ends. It was observed that the numerical procedure predicted stress distributions which exhibited encouraging agreement with the corresponding experimental tests of Cranch and Dally on shell intersections with small radius ratios.
