The aim of this study was to establish the effect of cross bore configuration geometry on stress concentration in cross-bored high-pressure vessels. The cross bore geometry parameters with adverse effects on stress concentration include cross bore size, shape, location, obliquity, and thickness ratio. However, there were no conducted studies on the optimal combination on these geometric configuration parameters that give minimum stress concentration, although the cited phenomena are common in

Therefore, there is need for further research on the optimal geometric configuration in a high-pressure vessel under elastic, elastoplastic, and plastic operating conditions with regards to the selected cross bore configuration parameters. Optimization of the stress concentration factor will greatly improve the design of high-pressure vessels.
