Check Nozzle Loads With WRC 537/WRC 107

>>Check Nozzle Loads With WRC 537/WRC 107

Check Piping Loads on Nozzles Using WRC 537

Process piping imposes external loads on vessel and exchanger nozzles that must be accounted for (see ASME VIII-1, UG-22).  Stresses on pressure vessel nozzles and attachments have historically been checked using the Welding Research Council Bulletin 107.  WRC 537 was published in 2010 and was meant to update and replace the widely used WRC 107.  WRC 537 contains equations that represent the graphs found in the March 1979 Revision of WRC 107 making it both easier to program and more accurate.  COMPRESS and INSPECT feature a built-in, no additional cost WRC 107 and WRC 537 stress analysis for local stresses in spherical and cylindrical shells that allows you to:

  • Specify multiple load cases for each nozzle

  • Review the calculated stresses

  • Find the governing load case

  • Quickly change the nozzle design based on stress results

  • Transfer the specified loads into the built-in FEA for further analysis if desired
