In this paper, a simple method for calculating lower-bound limit loads for shells is presented, based on Ilyushin’s and Ivanov’s generalized yield criterion, respectively, and using the elastic compensation procedure. Several examples, including torispherical and conical ends, radial nozzles, and a skirted vessel, are examined using this method. The results are compared with previously published results.
