Compliance With ASME VIII-1, Paragraph UG-22 Internal and external design pressures are not the only criteria used when designing pressure vessels. ASME VIII-1, paragraph UG-22, requires that all external loads acting on the pressure vessel be taken into account as well. These include forces and moments that arise from attached piping and equipment, the [...]
Enter Component Thickness in Rating Input Mode Rating input mode in COMPRESS calculates the MAWP and minimum thickness while allowing you to input your existing geometry. Inputs are re-evaluated during the modeling process and updated as necessary to reflect applicable Code dependencies. In selected circumstances warnings and good engineering practice reminders are presented. [...]
COMPRESS eliminates the time-consuming, manual iteration required by other software. In design mode COMPRESS selects sizes, thicknesses and ratings to meet Code requirements. Inputs are re-evaluated during the modeling process and updated as necessary to reflect applicable Code dependencies. In selected circumstances warnings and good engineering practice reminders are presented. Read About Rating Mode [...]

Standard ASME B16.5/16.47 flanges usually provide the most cost effective solution for bolted connections. For cases where no standard flange exists, the more complex rules of ASME Appendix 2 can be used. The COMPRESS Flange Wizard is a tool that creates optimized Appendix 2 flange designs with minimal time and effort. [...]
