Intergraph® PV Elite™ 2011 release updates ASME vessel codes and enhances 3D modeling for jacketed vessels and tubesheets

HOUSTON, Texas, December 15, 2010 – Intergraph announced today the release of Intergraph PV Elite 2011, now with updated ASME codes plus new capabilities for the integrated 3D modeling of jacketed vessels and vapor belts and for modeling tubesheets with simple supports. The new integrated 3D modeling allows you to add jackets or vapor belts as details on the main elements with jackets spanning across element boundaries, eliminating the need to manually transfer between vessel and jacket models and providing for easier, faster and more accurate models. For tubesheets, you can now model the welded joint between the tubesheet and the shell or the channel cylinders which can reduce stress while producing a more economical design that meets code requirements. PV Elite also includes all of the updates in the ASME code for vessel engineering and design, with recreated imperial tables plus the addition of ASME metric material tables.
