The present invention provides a pressure vessel having a non-circular axial cross-section, and a method for its construction, which achieves improved reliability, minimum weight, minimum cost, and maximum aerodynamic smoothness. The above characteristics are achieved through the use of honeycomb cores whose thickness varies in accordance with the distribution of bending moments created by the non-circular axial cross-sectional configuration under internal pressure. The present invention also provides a pressure vessel having a non-circular axial cross-s...
A pressure vessel having a non-circular axial cross-section and being subjected to varying bending moments along its periphery, said pressure vessel comprising a sandwich shell with a core layer that varies in thickness in accordance with said bending moments, said sandwich shell including inner and outer layers, at least one of which is a load-bearing layer.
