A novel method is developed for the design of pressure vessels with tooth-locked quick-actuating closures by considering the contact between the teeth and utilizing the surface-to-surface contact model with contact element and coulomb friction. Elastic and elastic–plastic analyses via the finite element method were employed. It is shown that these pressure vessels can meet the requirements of strength and fatigue.
