Visual Vessel Design is a comprehensive pressure vessel, shell and tube exchanger, and boiler design and analysis solution. The software offers a strong emphasis on European codes and standards, including EN13480, AD 2000 Merkblatt, EN13445, PD5500, TBK2, and TKN. It also includes ASME Section VIII, Div. 1 for true international code flexibility.

Why Visual Vessel Design?

Improve Productivity

Benefit from 2D integrated vessel drafting utility and 3D drawing utility.

Enhance Workflows

Take advantage of flexible printout options and utilization charts.

Increase Data Accuracy

Make use of integrated databases.

Key Features

Integrated Databases

VVD offers a comprehensive collection of dimensional and physical properties to minimize manual entry of values.

Tube Layouts

Easily perform a highly optimized tube layout with true flexibility in accommodating tube patterns of all kinds.

Utilization Charts

The utilization charts provide the user with instant feedback on the utilization of each component.

Materials Library

VVD includes data for more than 3,500 different materials referenced to the ASME, BSI, EN and NGS standards.

External Loads Module

Calculate loading on the support and the foundation loading for all load cases and for all types of support.

Report Generation

Generate reports that are data-rich and can include graphical elements and equations, with utilization charts.

General Arrangement (GA) Drawing Module

Easily select drawings and tables that you want to include in your GA drawing. Save the drawing in DXF and PDF formats.

2D and 3D Drafting Utility

Visualize the design in both 3D and 2D with all components at their proper location relative to the global base coordinate system.

Advanced Flange Design

Take advantage of sophisticated flange design methods from EN1591 and EN13445 Annex G.
