Permissible Cycle Life
ASME fatigue methods calculate a permissible cycle life of a vessel, but they do not predict the actual cycle life. In this sample, various methods are used to predict the permissible cycle life of a vessel with nozzles. Origins of the ASME fatigue life curves are also discussed.
Solid Modeling Blog
We use SolidWorks as our primary modeling tool, both for making drawings, and for Finite Element Analysis. Here are some of our notes on how to get the most out of SolidWorks.
Guide to CRN Numbers
An in depth guide to identifying vessel, piping and fitting CRN numbers. How to tell which province first registered the product, and where else it is also registered. Also, how to combine registration numbers from multiple provinces into one number that fits on your nameplate.
