Detail Design of Heat Exchanger

The detail design and update of the exchanger calculations starts after the using the design wizard and finalizing the setting for materials and nozzles.

The main window of VES will show something like below.

Figure Main window with all calculations and information.

The calculations relevant to channel 1 will be opened with a double click on the text 'Channel 1' or a single click on the plus '+' sign. In above picture the relevant ASME calculation shown are UG-27, UG-28, etc.

Double click the calculation to open the calculation sheet window. The user can edit the input fields and click in the menu 'Calculate' to execute a recalculation based on the edited values.

This window has an additional editing possibility to position the nozzle. In the menu click Options > Position. The below window will be opened.

Figure Nozzle position

The user can change the nozzle position by dragging with the mouse the nozzle to the required position.

This concludes the heat exchanger design wizard description. For detail design of heat exchangers and pressure vessels or other VES tools, please refer to the relevant documentation.
