Many industrial processes involve application of very high pressure and temperatures which is achieved by pressure vessels. Since they are to withstand very high values of pressure and temperature, it goes without saying that safety in designing of pressure vessel is of the utmost importance and if compromised; it can lead to catastrophic damages. This makes a strong call that the pressure vessels are operated within the safety levels, by qualified operators and under the guidance of regulatory authorities to ensure that the vessel meets the safety standards. Furthermore, installation needs to be done as per the details in design drawings, to avoid the severe accidents caused by the vibrations during operation. Owing to this, most companies insist and have a strong urge to design and manufacture them only as per the National or International standards like ASME or BS, and provide sufficient design allowances. Almost, everywhere across the globe, pressure vessels designed are based on ASME standards.

Show all documents Design by analysis of ductile failure and buckling in torispherical pressure vessel heads Thin shell torispherical pressure vessel heads are known to exhibit complex elastic- plastic deformation and buckling behaviour under static pressure. In pressure vessel Design by Analysis , the designer is required to assess both of these behaviour modes when specifying the allowable static load. In this paper, plastic collapse or gross plastic deformation loads are evaluated for two sample torispherical heads by 2D and 3D FEA based on an elastic-perfectly plastic material model. Small and large deformation effects are considered in the 2D analyses and the effect of geometry and load perturbation are considered in the 3D analysis.
To ensure that a pressure vessel operates safely over its entire lifetimes it is designed to a nationally recognised design code. Within Europe, BS has recently been reissued as a national standard, pd, and from May , all vessels will have to comply with the new draft European standard prEN These codes specify the minimum requirements for design, materials, fabrication and testing of pressure vessels. The design criteria are intended to guard against the following modes of failure:. The main design section of the codes consists of a series of design rules based on strength of materials equations and empirical formulae.
We are able to adhere to all customer specifications and code requirements. VIII Div. We provide a complete pressure vessel design package tailored to meet client requirements in temperature, pressure, chemical, and geometry. We are experienced in the design of vessels in all sizes ranging from small testing applications to large process columns with a variety of shapes including cylindrical, spherical and rectangular.
