The construction method for a large spherical containment vessel has been simulated by performing a series of stress freezing cycles on a three dimensional photoelastic model. A method has been described for transferring the model test measurements to the prototype. The effect of changing the wall thickness and mechanical properties of the shell have been studied using finite element analysis. It is concluded that the change in material properties from epoxy resin to steel has little influence upon the peak stresses, but considerable care is needed to correct for the effect of a change in the shell thickness.
