Pressure Vessel Welding Calculations

Pressure Vessel Welding Calculations


I am looking for some information on pressure vessel welding calculations for the following problem.

I have a pressure vessel which is designed 50mm thick and one of the welds has been manufactured too thin at 40mm. There is also a step on the weld which needs to be factored in to calculate a stress concentration for the weld.

Can anyone point me in the correct direction or code for doing this calculation to determine if the 40mm weld is fit for purpose?

Would this be somewhere in PD5500?
