Minimum requirements for the design of shells of noncircular cross section are given in Appendix 13 of Section VIII, Division 1 of the ASME Code. The ASME Section XII Committee is re-examining the design of noncircular shells as part of their activities on cargo tank design. In this study finite element analysis is used to model a thin-wall noncircular shell. The results of the analysis are compared to experimental data provided by RTL, Inc.
