Hi All,

Is it allowed by ASME VIII Div.2 to design tubesheet using TEMA tubehseet analysis method?

For a exchanger designed to Division 2, I noticed that Heat Exchanger Input Panel in PVElite does not have any selection for tubesheet analysis method. What if our client has specified in the datasheet that the tubesheet shall be designed in accordance with TEMA requirement? Can we design using TEMA tubesheet panel in CodeCalc and manually changed the material stress values as per Div 2?

Thank you.

Yes you can manually enter the stress values in codecalc and design the tubesheet per TEMA in Codecalc.

PV Elite-2010 (March Build) presently design tubesheet per ASME UHX part when division-2 is design Code.

I hope very soon tubesheet design per division-2 will be included in PV Elite.

Hope above will help you.
