Sant' Ambrogio Release NextGen ver 2018

The new 2018.1 version of the NextGen software for pressure vessel and heat exchanger calculation has been released in March 2018 with a lot of new features and improvements. Significantly the software has been updated to design code update include support

  • ASME: ASME VIII Div. 1 & 2 – Edition 2017

  • ASME: It is now possible to validate cylinders (e.g. pipes) using B31.3 rules in addition to BPVC ones

ASME : Calculation of rectangular vessel under external pressure

  • EN 13445: Detailed fatigue assessment according to Clause 18

  • Added detailed fatigue assessment module to all our EN13445 and AD2000 licensees

  • Special – Supports: Added an option to check vessel supports using MAWP instead of design pressure

  • ....

Optimizations in this release include :

  • ASME: Internal nozzle-to-wall weld size for protruding nozzles is now optional

  • ASME: Added check of minimum value for saddle angle θ

  • Asme VIII Div. 1: Added notes regarding nearest opening for nozzles on flat covers

  • Asme VIII Div. 1: Removed the ability to import components from Classic version of our ASME software

  • EN 13445: Added calculation of tube bends deformation to EN 13445-4 9.2.4

  • EN 13445: ASTM materials included in EN13445 database have been updated to 2017 version of ASME II

  • EN 13445: It is now possible to evaluate an ellipsoidal head made of stainless steel as cold spun

  • EN 13445: In some circumstances an error could occur (missing material) on a loose flange with lap

  • EN 13445: It’s now possible to calculate minimum flanged extension thickness of tubesheet calculate as additional component

  • EN 13445: Simplified fatigue solver as per EN13445: use Rp02 when Rp1 is not available for austenitic steels

  • EN 13445: Simplified fatigue solver EN13445: use Rp02 available in austenitic steels tables.

  • EN 13445: Improved descriptions and help topics for EN jacket closures

  • EN 13445: Improved cone calculation precision especially at high pressures. Minor differences may occur also at lower pressures.
