Let us see the components we will be designing according to above ASME codes:
Now, We have successfully designed the two components i.e. Shell and Head.
of Shell (
= Corrosion allowance = 3 mm
= Joint efficiency = 0.85
Ro = Outer shell radius = 1320 mm
P = Design pressure = 12 kgf/cm2
P = 1.1767 N/mm2
= Internal diameter of shell = Do –
= 2640 – 2(10)
= 2620 mm
Of Torispherical Head
intensification factor (W)
W = 1.5405
Rc = Crown radius = Do
Ri = Knuckle radius = 0.1 Do
this paper we have designed the shell and head of the pressure vessel using
ASME Section VIII division 1 as well as division 2. We have found that our
design considerations are correct and can be used for working of the vessel. We
are designing the rest of the components and that results will be included in
our next paper.
