Design of Vertical Pressure Vessel Using ASME Codes
While preparing this paper many of companies are subjecting to the hazards resulted from the incorrect design and manufacturing of pressure vessels (leakage or Explosion), those used in the storage of dangerous liquids or pressurized fluids. The main objective of using the pressure vessels are used as containers to contain many of materials such as: liquids, air, gases, chemical compounds and fuel, moreover pressure vessels co nsidered as important prop in petroleum and chemical industries especially as storages for oil and chemical components. The main goal of this paper to shed light on the importance processes of the Mechanical Design and Analysis of Vertical Pressure Vessels, also to give scratch to prevent this hazard using. The used model is very close shape to the used vessels in such companies. The design of vertical pressure vessel is carried out using the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Codes. ASME section VIII and Division 1 are normally used in design. Various components of the pressure vessel are designed by calculating the appropriate design factors like thickness of the shell, head, stress analysis etc. to validate the design result the pressure vessel is modelled and analyses in Solid works software. The engineering geometrical drawings and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) have been achieved on the targeted model of Vertical Pressure Vessel by using very moderate computer programs to give results agreed and compatible with correct choose of ASME codes. Throughout this paper, the permissible pressures are very considered as well as determination the wall thickness of the vessel is firmed to reach the acceptable maximum stresses. Furthermore, the design of targeted pressure vessel has been achieved under the range of ASME codes and engineering standards to reach the allowable designing boundaries.
