Trusting Cosmos for pressure vessels

Has anyone done any pressure vessel work on Cosmos designer? I've got two different vessels, one with internal pressure and one with external. I ran them both, I'm just not 100% sure I trust the results. The way it wanted to deform the semi-ellipsoidal tank head seemed very biarre. Any input?

(note: I am NOT going to trust Cosmos for the final design, I'll check it by hand or even have it coded. Also note pressures are relatively low: 100 psi.
