Abstract : Structural analysis of an aluminum lined glass filament wound pressure vessel was conducted. Pressure vessel design criteria were reviewed, and filament strength levels and the vessel configuration were established using netting analysis of the membrane, discontinuity analysis of the dome to cylinder junctions, and wrap pattern calculations. The vessel's dome was characterized and a discontinuity analysis of the polar boss region was completed. Axial polar boss design concepts were reviewed, and detailed structural analyses of two configurations were carried out. Then the polar boss designs were incorporated in the membrane analysis.
