Tangential, Tilted and Hillside Nozzle Design

Due to process and pipe routing considerations, nozzles on pressure vessels and heat exchangers are frequently placed in non-radial orientations. These non-radial or hillside nozzle to vessel intersections create obround openings which require additional geometric calculations to meet ASME VIII BPVC rules. Put another way, the nozzle opening diameter d used for UG-37 reinforcement [...]
