Abstract

The stress analysis of a cylindrical vessel subject to a radial load applied over a rectangular patch is used as a 'benchmark' problem to survey nine different microcomputers. The relevance of programming techniques, different computer languages and additional hardware are discussed in an effort to provide the pressure vessel designer with an 'in house' computing facility at modest cost.
