Pressure Vessel Design Validation

Our Design validation service for Pressure Vessels is executed by our proficient team members, who assure to comprehend clients' specific needs and requirements.

The process of pressure vessel design validation involves comparison of the actual design to the design requirements of the nominated international standards, for the stated design and operating conditions.

This process is to assure that the design is compliant and that the equipment has sufficient structural integrity for in-service conditions by meeting the minimum requirements of the relevant standard.

Pressure Vessels ASME Code Simplified

2004

This is a nice book, very nicely organized and full of great technical information. It will help readers simplify the things that they need in the ASME Code. The publication is breaking down the section of the ASME Code into the easily understandable abstracts concentrating on the most relevant matters and leaving out all non-essential stuff. We would recommend this book to be used as a very good reference source to those people needing to get information without having a code breaker.

This Division of Section VIII provides requirements applicable to the design, fabrication, inspection, testing, and certification of pressure vessels operating at either internal or external pressures exceeding 15 psig.  Such vessels may be fired or unfired.  This pressure may be obtained from an external source or by the application of heat from a direct or indirect source, or any combination thereof.  These rules provide an alternative to the minimum requirements for pressure vessels under Division 1 rules.  In comparison the Division 1, Division 2 requirements on materials, design, and nondestructive examination are more rigorous; however, higher design stress intensify values are permitted.  Division 2 rules cover only vessels to be installed in a fixed location for a specific service where operation and maintenance control is retained during the useful life of the vessel by the user who prepares or causes to be prepared the design specifications.  These rules may also apply to human occupancy pressure vessels typically in the diving industry.  Rules pertaining to the use of the U2 and UV ASME Product Certification Marks are also included.

PD 5500 , Specification for Unfired Fusion Welded Pressure Vessels

2013

This Published Document specifies requirements for the design, construction, inspection, testing and verification of compliance of new unfired fusion welded pressure vessels. The materials of construction are specified in Section 2. The term “pressure vessel” as used in this specification includes branches up to the point of connection to the connecting piping by bolting, screwing or welding, and supports, brackets or other attachments directly welded to the pressure containing shell. The term “unfired” excludes vessels that are subject to direct generated heat or flame impingement from a fired process. It does not exclude vessels subject to electrical heating or heated process streams.

pressure vessel design

2007

This book guides through general and fundamental problems of pressure vessel design. It moreover considers also problems which seem to be of lower importance but which turn out to be crucial in the design phase. The basic approach is rigorously scientific with a complete theoretical development of the topics treated, but the analysis is always pushed so far as to offer concrete and precise calculation criteria that can be immediately applied to actual designs. This is accomplished through appropriate algorithms that lead to final equations or to characteristic parameters defined through mathematical equations.

Process Equipment Design - Vessel Design

1991

A complete overview and considerations in process equipment design. Handling and storage of large quantities of materials is crucial to the chemical engineering of a wide variety of products. Process Equipment Design explores in great detail the design and construction of the containers – or vessels – required to perform any given task within this field. The book provides an introduction to the factors that influence the design of vessels and the various types of vessels, which are typically classified according to their geometry. The text then delves into design and other considerations for the construction of each type of vessel, providing in the process a complete overview of process equipment design.

Pressure Vessel Design Manual

2013

Pressure vessels are closed containers designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient pressure. They have a variety of applications in industry, including in oil refineries, nuclear reactors, vehicle airbrake reservoirs, and more. The pressure differential with such vessels is dangerous, and due to the risk of accident and fatality around their use, the design, manufacture, operation and inspection of pressure vessels is regulated by engineering authorities and guided by legal codes and standards. Pressure Vessel Design Manual is a solutions-focused guide to the many problems and technical challenges involved in the design of pressure vessels to match stringent standards and codes. It brings together otherwise scattered information and explanations into one easy-to-use resource to minimize research and take readers from problem to solution in the most direct manner possible.

Pressure Vessel Design, Guides and Procedures

2011

The main purpose of this book is to present guides, procedures, and design principles for pressure vessels to enhance the understanding of the designing process in this field. The economical pressure vessel design can only be accomplished through the application of various theoretical principles combined with industrial and practical knowledge. Therefore, both theory and practice are emphasized in this book and different aspects of pressure vessel requirements are included. The book contains 10 chapters to cover all parts of designing and testing. To its advantages, each designing chapter includes some flowcharts as guides to illustrate a stepwise sequence of the design. Moreover, the designing chapters are supported by an example to clarify each step for designers. Consequently, the designing steps are instructed and outlined using PV-Elite software which can pave the way for the designers to use the software to ease their calculations.

Mech. Design of Heat Exchanger & Pressure Vessel

1984

A tubular heat exchanger exemplifies many aspects of the challenge in designing a pressure vessel. High or very low operating pressures and temperatures, combined with sharp temperature gradients, and large differences in the stiffnesses of adjoining parts, are amongst the legion of conditions that behoove the attention of the heat exchanger designer. Pitfalls in mechanical design may lead to a variety of operational problems, such as tube-to-tubesheet joint failure, flanged joint leakage, weld cracks, tube buckling, and flow induced vibration. Internal failures, such as pass partition bowing or weld rip-out, pass partition gasket rib blow-out, and impingement actuated tube end erosion are no less menacing. Designing to avoid such operational perils requires a thorough grounding in several disciplines of mechanics, and a broad understanding of the inter­ relationship between the thermal and mechanical performance of heat exchangers. Yet, while there are a number of excellent books on heat ex­ changer thermal design, comparable effort in mechanical design has been non-existent. This apparent void has been filled by an assortment of national codes and industry standards, notably the "ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code" and the "Standards of Tubular Exchanger Manufacturers Association. " These documents, in conjunction with scattered publications, form the motley compendia of the heat exchanger designer's reference source. The subject matter clearly beckons a methodical and comprehensive treatment. This book is directed towards meeting this need.
