Nozzle loads applied by piping to various types of pump and compressor, and to steam turbines, may be analysed with Pipemill.
Two axis systems are available, one using the API local axis system (Z upward) and one utilising the more common global axis system used in piping stress analysis (Y upward).
Output is presented with respect to the various clauses in the code. Each calculated load combination is presented with its respective allowable value, and acceptability or failure is highlighted.
Up to four nozzles may be analysed (right, top). Shaft axis may be horizontal ‘X’ or ’Z’. The resolution point may be defined by the user.
Code specific results are produced. If overloaded, a diagnostic panel will be presented identifying the source of the problem.
