Stress : ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Spherical shells calculator to calculate stress in the circumferential direction of ASME boiler and pressure vessel code (BPVC) (UG-27).

The ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is an American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard that regulates the design and construction of boilers and pressure vessels. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers works as an Accreditation Body and entitles independent third parties such as verification, testing and certification agencies to inspect and ensure compliance to the BPVC.

Spherical Shells Stress : Pressure Vessel Calculation


??=P ( r + 0.2 t )2 t E

P = Internal gauge pressure
r = Inner radius (m)
t = Thickness of the wall (m)
E = Joint efficient
?? = Stress in the circumferential direction
