What is Thermal Bowing?

The thermal bowing phenomenon occurs when a horizontal pipe is filled partially by hot or cold fluid (LNG). Many thermal bowing occurrences cause unexpected damage to the piping or supporting structure. Since thermal bowing occurs mostly at transient conditions, such as during startup, the bowing phenomenon may go unnoticed until the damages are discovered. It …

Video: How To set Shell and Nozzle Parameters in Nozzle FEM

Nozzle-FEM is designed for stresses and flexibility calculation of nozzle-to-shell junctions using the Finite Element Method (FEM). The program also calculates nozzle’s allowable loads and estimates the strength of the nozzle’s junctions for a wide range of geometric configurations and operating conditions. Nozzle-FEM helps to provide a higher level of equipment safety along with reducing …
