Visual Vessel Design: Allocating Newly Added Components to Existing Component Analysis

This month’s newsletter article focuses on Visual Vessel Design (VVD), a comprehensive pressure vessel, shell and tube exchanger, and boiler design and analysis software with a strong emphasis on European codes and standards.
VVD enables the explicit modeling of most vessel components. However, while building the model, the input tabbed pages of a component are filled in and the component is analyzed and saved. Any existing component in a model that could be relevant to the current component’s input may be available for selection during that input so that its pertinent information can be used in the current component analysis.

Most components’ input enable the manual entry of relevant data about neighboring or attached components that affect the current component analysis. The analysis of the component can be completed and vessel modeling can proceed.
