PVELITE COURSE

Intergraph PV Elite (Pressure vessel design & Analysis) software package is an engineering tool used in the mechanical design, analysis & evaluation of vessel and heat exchanger.

PV Elite is comprehensive program for the complete structural design or analysis of tall towers and horizontal vessels according to latest standards from ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, PD 5500 (British Code), UBC, EN-13445, API-579 and the Welding Research Council.

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.
