Lifting Lug Calcs using Compress

Lifting Lug Calcs using Compress

Lifting Lug Calcs using Compress

I have to carry out lifting lug calcs. The lifting lug is on a valve train i.e. attached to hollow square bar on a skid.

Thanks in advance

RE: Lifting Lug Calcs using Compress

COMPRESS provides option to design lifting lugs for vertical lift, and also lugs for lifting/turning vessel (including the tailing lug). See the options under the "Attach" menu.

The lifting lugs are attached only to the pressure boundary material (eg: heads, cylinders, cones). Tailing lugs can be attached to support skirts.

COMPRESS does not provide option to attach lifting lugs to structural supports such as skids, etc.

Please write to us at support(at)codeware.com if you have further questions.

RE: Lifting Lug Calcs using Compress

If compress does not support lug calcs, then how can I carry out calculations for the lug. Is there a method or program that I can use.

RE: Lifting Lug Calcs using Compress

I have used method of EN 13445-3 16.7. Its programmed in Visual Vessel Design (www.ohmtech.no)
