Derby, United Kingdom - Hexagon PPM, c/o Intergraph UK Ltd.
10 April, 09:00 AM - 11 April, 05:00 PM

This course is for engineers/analysts who carry out Pressure Vessel Design to satisfy design code requirements. The class includes a basic introduction to the software (interface, simple data input, editing, etc.) and then goes on to develop further skills by using PV Elite software to design a number of pressure vessel configurations to various codes. It also covers other topics that should prove useful for the Pressure Vessel Engineer in addition to output interpretation and the production of deliverables. Delegates should have an appreciation for Mechanical Engineering theory and principles. Qualifications would typically be a degree or HNC/HND in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or relevant experience.
