External Loads on Pressure Vessel Supports

  • Lets you specify as many lateral forces and vertical loads as you want

  • Allows you to specify if the load acts in one or all of the operating, empty and test cases

  • Combines the lateral forces and vertical loads with the loads due to pressure, weight, wind and seismic

  • Calculates the effects of the load combinations on pressure components such as cylinders and transitions

  • Determines the global external load’s effects on pressure vessel supports including skirts, legs and lugs

  • Calculates the external load’s effects on skirt base rings, leg base plates, anchor bolts and foundations
