Curiosity and development have always been an integral part of human psychology. With the evolution in the industry, optimization, credibility, and durability have become a prime focus which has led to the advancement in composite materials in the material industry. The behavior of composite materials under different loading conditions for different geometries cannot be determined as in the similar way as conventional materials which lead to the anomaly about the type of composite materials to be used. This work is concerned about the validation of the optimum orientation angle and to understand the behavior of stress in each layer of a composite pressure vessel. Pressure vessel play a significant role in various industries such as power plant, aeronautics, aerospace industry etc. The fuel carried in aerospace application is also contained in pressure vessels. Therefore, the optimization of pressure vessel using composite materials may help in weight reduction and provide greater efficiency to the rockets. The failure linked to pressure vessel is a catastrophic failure. To understand the stress behavior and obtain optimum fiber orientation angles, “Parametric Analysis” is used in ANSYS ACP. The geometry is then post analyzed to understand the durability of the composite pressure vessel.
