Nozzle Design, the weak point in every Pressure Vessel


Tirenti, Javier

To attach a nozzle in a pressure vessel, it is necessary to make a hole in the shell or head body in question. When making this hole, an area of the vessel is being "taken away", therefore stress paths are going to divert tangentially to the hole. Thus, we must "substitute" the removed area by adding reinforcement within the limits. In this seminar you will learn all the details to arrive to safe and easy to fabricate designs
