COADE UPDATES PVElite PRESSURE VESSEL SOFTWARE

HOUSTON, December 27, 2000 COADE, Inc. has released PVElite Version 4.10, an enhanced edition of its popular integrated vessel design and stress analysis software. Updates in PVElite Version 4.10 include the ASME 2000 addenda and ASCE 98 wind code as well as provisions to use the 1999 material database. Other enhancements include user bolt loads in the tubesheet programs, simultaneous calculations for corroded and non-corroded thick expansion joints, separate entry of m and y factors for partition gaskets, the addition of graphical results processing in rigging analysis, a transparency option in the 3D viewer and ladder specifications. Also, the TEMA and ASME tubesheet programs now perform multiple load cases. For additional details click here.

In addition to these new features, PVElite incorporates current pressure vessel codes and standards such as ASME BPV, BS (British Standard) 5500, ASCE #7, Uniform Building Code (UBC), National Building Code (NBC), ANSI B16.5, TEMA and WRC Bulletin 107 and 297. PVElite 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 start up, 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 PVElite using its stringent quality assurance (QA) standards and backs the software with a trained team of software engineers and program developers.
