Abstract : An internally pressurizable expansible body is supported by an improved rigid mount which minimizes stresses induced in the body due to constraining radial expansion of the body. The mount comprises a plurality of resilient members juxtaposed betwee the body and a fixed annulus which is capable of carrying axial, transverse and torsional loads imposed upon the body. (Author)
