HOUSTON, January 14, 1999 COADE, Inc. has released PVElite Version 3.40, an updated version of its popular Windows (95/98/NT) integrated vessel design and stress analysis software. PV Elite Version 3.40 includes ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Section VIII, Division 1, 1998 Edition. Other enhancements provide an expanded yield stress vs. temperature database, support for ASME Code Case 2290 and BS-5500 (British Standard) code additions for isolated nozzle, conical and combined stress calculations.

In addition to ASME BPV and BS 5500 codes, PV Elite includes other pressure vessel design standards such as ASCE #7, Uniform Building Code (UBC), National Building Code (NBC), ANSI B16.5, TEMA and WRC Bulletin 107.

PV Elite provides engineers, designers, estimators, fabricators and inspectors with complete design of tall towers, horizontal vessels, pots and pans and individual vessel components. The software was designed for quick installation and start up right out of the box, and its graphical modeling capabilities are easy to use and allow for quick data assembly and vessel analysis. As is the case with all its software products, COADE has tested PV Elite using its stringent quality assurance (QA) standards and backs the software with a trained team of software engineers and program developers.
