This sample vessel is drawn using SolidWorks. We also offer drafting services using AutoCAD.

This vessel has a large nozzle located on the straight shell. The diameter of the nozzle requires Appendix 1-7 calculations. The nozzle also has large loads and moments specified by the customer. Nozzle PRO has been used to calculate the resulting stresses. The Nozzle PRO results are much more accurate than using WRC-107 methods.

Since this sample was made, ASME introduced new App 1-8 and 1-10 methods which can also be used to calculate area replacement in large nozzles.
