In the current research, the elastic shakedown limit loads for a cylindrical vessel–nozzle intersection is determined via a direct noncyclic simplified technique. The cylindrical vessel–nozzle intersection is subjected to a spectrum of steady internal pressure magnitudes and cyclic in-plane bending moments on the nozzle end. The determined elastic shakedown limit loads are utilized to generate the elastic shakedown boundary (Bree diagram) of the cylindrical vessel–nozzle structure. Additionally, the maximum moment carrying capacity (limit moments) and the elastic limit loads are determined and imposed on the Bree diagram of the structure. The simplified technique outcomes showed excellent correlation with the results of full cyclic loading elastic–plastic finite element simulations.
