This paper presents the numerical procedure for the stress analysis of the intersecting shells consisting of an ellipsoidal shell and nozzle. Thin shell theory and finite element method are used. The developed special-purpose computer program SAIS is employed for elastic stress analysis of the model joints of the ellipsoidal shell with nozzle. The parametric study of the joints under internal pressure loading was performed. The results are presented in graphical form. Nondimensional geometric parameters are considered to analyze the effects of changing these parameters on the maximum effective stresses in the shells.
