Odd vessels

I always seem to get the weird stuff...okay, I have a silo with a cone type head, and an eccentric cone transition to 6" nozzle.  Any ideas on how to enter this puppy into compress???  Any???

RE: Odd vessels

(1) COMPRESS provides option for transitions under the component menu. However, both ends of the transition are assumed to be "open"; ie: it will not have a closed end as for a cone type head. However, you should be able to enter a small value for the small end diameter and be done with it.

(2) COMPRESS does not provide for piping or other components to be attached to the end of a nozzle other than flanges, bolted covers, and heads.

However, you can design the nozzle neck as a 6" cylinder in a second COMPRESS file. Then attach a transition to the end of the cylinder. This will get you calculations for the cone and the cone-cylinder junctions. COMPRESS provides option for eccentric cones only for horizontal vessels, not vertical.
