New Model: Rectangular vessel
Rectangular vessels represent high requirements in terms of operationally suitable design and necessary strength. This sophisticated design is being used more and more frequently in apparatus engineering. In most cases, these tanks are structurally reinforced by welded-on ribs.
With our new FELV module for rectangular tanks, we offer the possibility to check reinforced rectangular tanks for strength quickly and efficiently. The vessel can be subjected to internal or external overpressure, wind and/or earthquake loads or external loads in general and a hydrostatic load.
The input of your geometry data, materials and loads is done in a user-friendly way via a LV input mask. The calculation then runs in an external application, which visualizes, tabulates and documents all data entered and obtained. This gives you a complete overview of your project and your current design at any time.
