• Introduction to PV-Elite, basic modelling (horizontal vessel, vertical tower), materials.
  • Comparison code criteria, USA, UK and Europe.
  • Convert ASME VII design to EN 13445
  • Loads analysis to WRC 107
  • Local stress analysis using Code Calc
  • Dealing with fatigue
  • Legs, lugs and jackets
  • Fitness for purpose exercises according to API 579
  • Composite Vessel design
  • Heat exchanger with fixed tube sheet
  • Heat exchanger with submerged floating head
  • Heat exchanger with U-tube bundle

Basic Vessel Components & Analysis

  •  Internal pressure on cylinders and heads
  •  External pressure on cylinders and heads
  •  Nozzle reinforcement and weld strength
  •  Cones and Conical sections
  •  Spherically dished covers
  •  Brittle fracture requirements on carbon steels

Additional Vessel Components & Analysis

  •  Weld neck, slip-on, and ring flanges
  •  Blind flanges and flat heads
  •  Tube sheets, including the TEMA fixed tube sheet requirements
  •  Flanged and fluid and metal bellows expansion joints
  •  Stresses in shells due to loads on attachments
  •  Rectangular vessels



PV elite gives owner operators and engineering firms across the globe the opportunity to create vessel and heat exchanger design quickly and accurately. upon completion of this course, attendees should be able to model and design everyday piping system and avoid inefficiency common mistake and pit falls of using computer aided diagram designs.
