This paper reviews some of the current developments in the determination of stress concentration factor in pressure vessels at openings. The literature has indicated a growing interest in the field of stress concentration analysis in the pressure vessels. The motivation for this research is to analyze the stress concentration occurring at the openings of the pressure vessels and the means to reduce the effect of the same. Most of the researchers have worked on the stress concentration occurring at circular and radial openings in the shell under internal pressure. Also some of the researchers have worked on holes in the end covers. In this paper the recent developments, theories for estimation of stress concentration are presented and the scope for future studies is also presented.
