Intergraph® PV Elite™ : Vessel and Exchanger Analysis - Introduction

PV Elite™ is a comprehensive program for the complete structural design or analysis of tall towers, horizontal vessels and shell and tube heat exchangers according to latest standards from ASME, PD 5500 (British Code), UBC, EN 13445, API-579 and the Welding Research Council. 
PV Elite™ also offer a complete solution for vessel and heat exchanger design, analysis and evaluation. Users of PV Elite have designed equipment for the most extreme uses and have
done so quickly, accurately and profitability.

PV Elite™ evaluates the entire vessel, analyzing the effects of weight and bending due to wind and seismic loads. It combines these overall loads with pressure to design and/or check vessel wall thickness. Basing stress calculations on this total structural load ensures sufficient wall thickness for the vessel in its operating environment and ensures proper design of the vessel supports.

Element types include cylindrical shells; elliptical, spherical, torispherical, conical and flat heads; conical sections (including knuckles); body flanges; and skirts with base ring details. The program provides base ring, saddle, leg and lug design and also includes modules for analyzing vessel components such as nozzles, flanges, base ring and other vessel components.



To make the design process easy, the status bar constantly displays the position of the current element, its required thickness, its maximum allowable working pressure and its maximum allowable pressure in the new and cold condition. It can be used for both new design or re-rating. Graphic presentation keeps your data organized and confirms the integrity of the model. 

Data Collection
PV Elite makes defining pressure boundary conditions for vessels and exchangers easy, even for load sets that require significant data input. PV Elite streamlines data entry by breaking the input down into sensible subsets. Help on any input item is only a keystroke away.

PV Elite’s graphical representation of analysis models helps ensure confidence in the input and results.With PV Elite, analysis models can be viewed and manipulated with complete ease.

Analysis Options
PV Elite performs calculations in accordance with ASME Section VIII Divisions 1 & 2, PD 5500 and EN 13445. Rules from API 579 (Fitness for Service) are also included for evaluating the current state and remaining life of existing vessels.

Output and Reports
To simplify inspection requirements, PV Elite lists the most important equations such as required thickness and maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) and also groups results by type (e.g. internal pressure, external pressure, bending stress, nozzles and flanges). Overall results are summarized where the element or detail controlling the overall vessel MAWP is identified.

Materials and Codes
PV Elite is a global package with international code rules plus extensive region-specific content. Vessel material definitions, piping and steel component data, local wind loads and local seismic loads of many regional markets are all included.

PV Elite interfaces with other popular software packages for finite element analysis, foundation design and drafting. PV Elite also shares a bi-directional link to COADE CADWorx® Equipment module and COADE PV Fabricator™.

  1. tensile strength tearing resistance tester - Tear resistance (or tear strength) is a measure of how well a material can withstand the effects of tearing. More specifically however it is how well a material (generally rubber) resists the growth of any cuts when under tension, it is generally measured in kN/m.[ Tear resistance can be measured by the ASTM D 412 method (the same used to measure tensile strength, modulus and elongation). tensile strength tearing resistance tester are used measure tensile strength of a material.
