special forging Boot design

Can anybody pls suggest me how to design a forged boot with SA516-70 ( plate neck )  welded to it ? I know how to design a special forging boot, boot being 5 feet long, it requires neck to be designed with SA 516-70 plate. I would appreciate your support and ideas. Thanks.

RE: special forging Boot design

COMPRESS does not provide option for extending nozzles with piping, elbows, tees, etc.

Nozzles can only have an attached flange with bolted cover, or a welded head or cover.

You can design components that extend beyond the nozzle by modeling in a second COMPRESS vessel design file: model the nozzle neck as the main cylindrical shell, then add the additional components.

For your case with a nozzle (boot) neck constructed of a forged nozzle with a rolled plate extension, I suggest the approach of modeling in a second file. If the materials were the same you "could" model as a Type 9 nozzle, which is intended for integral "self-reinforced" nozzle forgings for which the special rules of Figure UG-40 sketch (e) must be considered.
