This paper explores the use of limit load analysis methods for the design of a pressure vessel manway cover as per the ASME boiler and pressure vessel code guidelines. The results of elastic and limit load finite element analysis are discussed for the design. The concept of reference volume consideration along with linear elastic finite element analysis to determine the lower bound limit load has been explored and the results are compared with the non-linear elastic-plastic limit load analysis.
