Paper Abstract

Flat disk acrylic windows and conical acrylic windows of 300, 60°, 90°, 120°; and 150° included angles have been tested to destruction under short-term hydrostatic loading. Both the displacements during pressurization and the critical failure pressures have been recorded. The critical pressures of windows used as test specimens in this study have been presented in non-dimensional form and can be used to predict the critical pressures of windows with larger diameters.
