Stresses and deflections of hemispherical shells with nozzle openings lying on the axis of symmetry may be determined accurately and rapidly with the aid of the tables given in the paper. The tables give the influence coefficients (i.e., stresses and deflections obtained with unit applied loads) for the edge and interior points for various types of edge bending load. The radius-thickness ratios of the hemispherical shells considered varied from 15 to 250; the total central angle of the opening varied from twenty to one hundred degrees. An illustration of the utility of the coefficients is given by considering a hemisphere-cylinder intersection problem.
