In a Zick analysis of a horizontal pressure vessel on two saddle supports with stiffening rings, there is no direct method of determining the distribution of the load between one stiffening ring adjacent to the saddle support and the shell. In this paper, the authors discuss a method of calculating the load distribution between the stiffening ring and the shell. After establishing the load distribution, the stresses in the ring and shell are calculated and compared against the allowable stresses in the ASME Code.
