Pressure Vessel Nozzles: Definition, Types, Allowable Loads and Design [With PDF]

A pressure vessel nozzle is an opening in the pressure vessel through which fluid enters or exits the pressure vessel. The Nozzle, in general, projects from the pressure vessel’s surface

Stress Classification in Pressure Vessels and Piping as per ASME B31 and BPVC Codes

In this article, We will learn the stress classifications as per ASME B31 and ASME BPVC codes in details. Stress Classification in ASME B31 For performing stress Analysis while designing

Dish and Nozzle Center line Distance Calculation from Nozzle Orientation of Pressure Vessel

Many a time during our day to day engineering services we need to calculate several important dimensions from Nozzle Orientation drawing (Part of Equipment GA drawing) of the pressure vessel.

Understanding Pressure and Temperature in the context of Pressure Vessel Design

Many of the failures that we experience in the process industry are due to overpressure. Overpressure is the result of unbalance or disruption of normal flows of material and energy.
