Does Coade have any package to perform FEA on nozzles in a vessel? We have procured PVElite, but I think this software is not meant for performing FEA.

Thanks

You are correct, PVElite is not an FEA package. Rather PVElite implements the equations found in the ASME and PD5500 pressure vessel codes.

For FEA analysis of nozzles, I would recommend either FE/PIPE or NozzlePRO, both available from Paulin Research Group. Contact information is www.paulin.com and/or tony@paulin.com.
