To calculate the "radial force limit" for nozzle, TANK uses, in the formulas, only the thickness of the shell indicated by the "user". This value is used also for Design and Test case, not only for User case. Therefore TANK don't calculate the "radial limit force" for every different case using every different thickness?
Thank you

Hello Taibio

I don't quite follow what you mean. I am sorry about that, but is seems to me that the shell thickness to be used is the shell iton which the nozzle is installed.

I guess Taibio would like to see in report a "radial limit force" for Test case and other for Design case i.e."t-CA" thickness of shell on which the nozzle is installed. If true my understanding, I think that by input one can experiment the differences between "new" and "corroded", anyway radial limit force in test is not bringing so much useful info...
