saddle support design spreadsheet

ABSTRACT
In order to investigate the impact of different geometrical parameters like number of gussets, and gusset thickness, on the design of saddle support, the horizontal pressure vessel is designed and analyzed by Finite Element Method. The saddle support of the horizontal pressure vessel is designed as per Handbook of the Pressure Vessel by Megyesy. The solid model of pressure vessel with realistic details of two saddle supports is analyzed by using FEA software package ANSYS APDL.
The purpose of this paper is to optimize the geometrical parameters of the saddle and to find whether saddle support can sustain the horizontal pressure vessel under loading conditions. We found 28 % reduction in material requirement which results reduction in costs.

INTRODUCTION
The design of horizontal cylindrical vessels with dished heads to resist internal pressure is covered by existing codes. However, the method of support is left pretty much up to the designer. In general the cylindrical shell is made a uniform thickness which is determined by the maximum circumferential stress due to the internal pressure. Since the longitudinal stress is only one-half of this circumferential stress, these vessels have available a beam strength which makes the two-saddle support system ideal for a wide range of proportions. However, certain limitations are necessary to make designs consistent with the intent of the code. The purpose of this paper is to indicate the approximate stresses that exist in cylindrical vessels supported on two saddles at various locations. Knowing these stresses, it is possible to determine which vessels may be designed for internal pressure alone, and to design structurally adequate and economical stiffening for the vessels which require it. Formulas are developed to cover various conditions, and a chart is given which covers support designs for pressure
vessels made of mild steel for storage of liquid weighing 42 lb. per cu. ft.

Abstract

This paper presents the design analysis of saddle support of a horizontal pressure vessel. Since saddle have the vital
role to support the pressure vessel and to maintain its stability, it should be designed in such a way that it can afford the vessel load and internal pressure of the vessel due to liquid contained in the vessel. A model of horizontal pressure vessel and saddle support is created in ANSYS. Stresses are calculated using mathematical approach and ANSYS software. The analysis reveals the zone of high localized stress at the junction part of the pressure vessel and saddle support due to operating conditions. The results obtained by both the methods are compared with allowable stress value for safe designing.

With this spreadsheet you ll easily design saddle supports for pressure vessels (horizontal), something that usualy takes hours now will take only minutes! It have greate drawings to aid to undestrand each part of the design like the saddle support, the baseplate, the wear plate, the vessel itself, and much more! It have all the equations and calculation steps, so you can check everything, where the numbers came from, where it s used.. Oh, by the way, it uses the ASME BPVC Section VII Division 2 method (Zick Method) together with the Dennis Moss methods.
