DESCRIPTION

PD 6550-2:1989


This standard PD 6550-2:1989 Explanatory supplement to BS 5500:1988. Specification for unfired fusion welded pressure vessels. Section three. Design is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 23.020.30 Gas pressure vessels, gas cylinders

Deals with the method for the design of branch connections given in clause 3.5.4 of BS 5500 being based on analysis rather than empirical rules which had shown itself to be safe and economic in the use of material. Also assesses the service performance of the most highly stressed region at the nozzle penetration.
