Cyclic Design in Compress

Cyclic Design in Compress

Cyclic Design in Compress

Hi everyone, usually a spectator here but couldn't find any info on this.

Looking to design a blowcase using Compress, but can not seem to figure out if Compress has a feature to do cyclic design on a vessel.

Any knowledge or suggestions are welcome if someone has managed to do this before.

Thanks in advance!

RE: Cyclic Design in Compress

If by "cyclic design" you mean that the vessel is in cyclic service as described in ASME Section VIII, Division 1, UG-22(e), then no, Compress does not do this. Designing for cyclic service is a specialized affair that requires expertise - usually in applying Design By Analysis in ASME Section VIII, Division 2, Part 5.
