Stress categorization is an essential procedure in Design by Analysis (DBA) pressure vessel design methods based on elastic analysis in ASME and EN code. It was difficult to implement especially around structural discontinuities. A new elastic analysis, DBA-L, was proposed recently to avoid stress categorization. A model of the cylindrical pressure vessel with spherical end is used to check the validity of this method by comparing with other design methods based on stress categorization procedures and elastic-plastic stress analysis from ASME and EN code. The results indicate that the DBA-L is an economic and explicit method, and can be used an alternative method to stress categorization.
