PV Elite webinar April 26th to demonstrate leg design of pressure vessels

HOUSTON, Texas, April 17, 2018 – CADWorx & Analysis Solutions will host a PV Elite webinar on April 26, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. CDT that will demonstrate vessel leg design as a lower cost option for small vessels. Large vertical vessels are normally supported on skirts, a very stable solution. For small vessels, legs can be a less expensive option because they can be made from standard off-the-shelf rolled sections. However, legs can more fragile which calls for special design considerations to avoid structural failure such as buckling. The webinar will discuss the design issues associated with using legs for support. The webinar leader will be Ray Delaforce, senior support engineer for PV Elite at Hexagon PPM.
