The problem of two normally intersecting cylindrical shells subjected to internal pressure is considered. The differential equations used for the shells are solved subject to the boundary conditions imposed along the intersection between the two cylinders. Details of a procedure for obtaining a numerical solution are given. Numerical results for a radius ratio of 1:2 are presented. Problems encountered in the numerical computation are discussed and the results of the analysis are compared with experiment.
