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 [...]

Check Nozzle Loads With WRC 537, WRC 107

Check Piping Loads Using WRC 107, 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 [...]
