Design Analysis of Pressure Vessel using PVElite
k vijaya lakshmi , Y V Mohan Reddy
The pressure vessels are a closed vessel used for storing fluids at higher pressures different from the ambient pressure. As the pressure vessels are stored under high pressure, there is a potential impact for an accident so pressure vessel has to be design accurately and safely. A horizontal pressure vessel is designed with reference to the ASME Sec.VIII Division1 Codes and standard. AutoCAD is used for drafting the scaled construction drawing of pressure vessel. These construction drawings are used as reference for the remaining process. As the mathematical calculation of pressure vessel becomes tedious, graphical based software PV Elite was used for analysis on shell, head, nozzle and saddle supports.
