How can the material impact test temperature be set in PVElite 2017 ?

How can the material impact test temperature be set in PVElite 2017 ?

(OP)
Dear All,

I have executed a calculation of a Torospherical head with a blinded welding neck nozzle (Pdesign=1,1 MPa, Tdesign =160 oC) in PVElite 2017.
However the head (SA-516 70) and nozzle (SA-350 LF2) have a calculated MDMT of resp. -6 oC and -29 oC, while -46 oC is required.
These parts are impact tested and I want to enter that in the program so they are exempted of the MDMT check resulting in below warning:

Required Minimum Design Metal Temperature -46 °C
Warmest Computed Minimum Design Metal Temperature -6 °C

I have tried to enter the material impact test temperature in the configuration dialog box but it only shows me the components and no place where I can enter the temperature.

What am I doing wrong ? or am I trying to enter the material impact test temperature in the wrong dialog box ?

Does anyone know ?

Best regards
VesselFred

Hi Vessel Fred

Sorry for the delay.

To set the material on Impact Test on PV Elite, all you have to do is

--> While selecting material there are 3 dots besides its selection.
--> Go for "If normalized or quenched and tempered option" so that your material gets shift to curve D
--> Check the box at the bottom "Has this material been impact tested?"

and there you are with material been impact tested.

Regards
