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

The COMPRESS Loads Menu allows designers to easily include global external loads when sizing pressure vessel supports such as skirts, legs and lugs
