Course Description

Extensive examples and sample calculations are used to explain the design approach for the majority of typical pressure vessels. Starting with the PED, materials selection and low-temperature design, the rules for cylinders, heads and cones under internal and external pressure are developed.

Supports design, jacketed vessels, nozzles and openings, flat ends, bolted flange connections, local load analysis and fatigue assessment are all considered. A simplified treatment of the use of finite element analysis in pressure vessel design is also given.

Participants are expected to have a good understanding of general engineering mechanics. No previous experience of pressure vessel design codes and standards is necessary.
