Overview of different approaches for completing the nozzle design of pressure vessels
In practice, vessel designers are often confronted with the lack of actual nozzle loads at the initial design phase of the pressure vessel. This article provides the designer with three possible options that can be applied to complete the nozzle design of a pressure vessel, despite the fact that final nozzle loads are not yet available. As such, the drawbacks resulting from the absence of the piping reactions can be eliminated at an early stage.
Keywords- designer, nozzle loads, pressure vessel, piping reactions, nozzle design.
