An experimental study has been conducted to determine the critical pressure of conical acrylic windows under short-term hydrostatic loading. Conical windows with 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 deg included angle, and thickness-to-diameter ratios in the 0.125 to 1.0 range have been tested to destruction. Both their critical pressures and displacements through the mounting have been recorded and plotted for ready reference of designers.
