Nozzle Loads in Seismic Cases

Nozzle Loads in Seismic Cases

Nozzle Loads in Seismic Cases

Dear all,

at first I want to apologize for seemingly silly questions - but I have to deal with seismic cases (friction multiplier=0) for the first time. smile

I have a system which is okay in stresses - just the nozzle loads in 2 seismic load cases in +X and +Y (both vertical) exceed.

Please, can you give me some simple advice that could solve the problem?

Thank you very, very much in advance.

RE: Nozzle Loads in Seismic Cases

Reduce the Nozzle loads to within allowable!!!
Why do you have two vertical load directions (X & Y) ?

RE: Nozzle Loads in Seismic Cases

Nozzle loads are increasing in vertical direction means you have to transfer the loading from nozzle to structure..first try with relocation of nearbysupports....if not possible then try adding spring to do this...
