A new method employing the fitting of a least squares plane to stress distribution obtained from a finite element analysis for evaluating categorized values is presented. The property of a least squares fit, i.e., the preservation of volume under stress distribution and the plane of consideration, is used in evaluating various numerical integrals. The procedure is demonstrated through application to a typical shell nozzle junction.
