Little P.Eng. Engineering is an Engineering Consultant providing pressure vessels nozzle finite element analysis (FEA) services to its clients. Our professional engineers uses computer-based modeling and simulation tools to analyze the structural integrity and performance of pressure vessels nozzles under various loading and environmental conditions. Little P.Eng. Engineering offers a range of services, including the design and testing of new nozzles, the analysis and repair of existing nozzles, and the development of best practices for nozzle design and testing.
Little P.Eng. Engineering uses two software tools to perform pressure vessel nozzles FEA: ANSYS or Nozzle Pro.
ANSYS is a powerful and widely used engineering simulation software that can be used to analyze a wide range of structural and mechanical systems, including pressure vessels and nozzles. It is known for its accuracy, flexibility, and scalability, and is used by many companies and organizations around the world.
Nozzle Pro is another software tool that is specifically designed for the analysis of nozzles and nozzle-like structures. It is developed by Software Cradle, a company based in Japan, and is used by many engineering firms and research organizations around the world. Nozzle Pro is known for its ease of use, fast computation times, and robust analysis capabilities, and is a popular choice for nozzle FEA.
Using ANSYS or Nozzle Pro. for nozzle FEA involves creating a digital model of the nozzle and defining the loadings and boundary conditions that the nozzle will be subjected to. The software then solves complex mathematical equations to predict how the nozzle will behave under these conditions. This can provide valuable insights into the structural behavior of the nozzle, such as stresses and deformations, and can help to identify potential failure modes or areas of high risk.
Nozzle FEA using ANSYS or Nozzle Pro. can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
Design and optimization of new nozzles
Analysis and repair of existing nozzles
Verification of nozzle designs for compliance with codes and standards
Development of best practices for nozzle design and testing
Little P.Eng. Engineering performs its nozzle FEA services in accordance with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 2. This code is a widely recognized standard for the design, construction, and inspection of pressure vessels and associated components, such as nozzles. It provides requirements for materials, design, fabrication, testing, and inspection, and is used by many companies and organizations around the world to ensure the safety and reliability of their pressure vessels and nozzles.
By using the latest software tools and techniques, and by complying with ASME SEC VIII Div. 2, Little P.Eng. Engineering is able to provide its clients with high-quality nozzle FEA services that are reliable, accurate, and compliant with relevant standards. Its expertise and commitment to quality make it a valuable resource for ensuring the safe and reliable operation of pressure vessels and nozzles.
