COMPRESS includes calculations to determine the effect of external loads on pressure vessels as required by ASME paragraph U-2(g). COMPRESS also provides a Foundation Loads Summary report to help designers forward these structural loadings to civil and structural engineering team members. This COMPRESS feature provides a convenient way to forward information to the Engineering disciplines typically involved in new construction projects.
The COMPRESS foundation loads summary breaks down the loads for the specified vessel operating conditions including weight, wind, seismic, and vortex shedding. To eliminate the need to switch between multiple design reports, all relevant support details, including the support location information, are included.
