A series of steel models having single nozzles radially and nonradially attached to a spherical shell is presently being examined by means of strain gages. Parameters being studied are nozzle dimensions, length of internal nozzle protrusions, and angles of attachment. The loads are internal pressure and axial thrust and moment loadings on the nozzle. This paper presents both experimental and theoretical results from six of the configurations having radially attached nozzles for which the sphere dimensions are equal and the outside diameter of the attached nozzle is constant. In some instances the nozzle protrudes through the vessel.
