Abstract: Abstract Results are reported of a strain-gage test conducted on a 54-in-diam cylindrical shell to which was attached two 12-in-diam pipes. The pipes were subjected to direct axial-tension loading, direct axial-compression loading, and transverse bending moments. This construction simulates the conditions which exist in boiler drums, pressure piping, hydraulic penstocks, etc., where pipe connections are subject to forces and moments that develop strains in the shell to which the pipes are attach…
