Description

661PRO performs a finite element analysis of nozzles on rectangular header boxes for air-cooled heat exchangers per API 661.  Several types of nozzles are allowed, including circular, oblo-swaged, tapered and nozzle-reinforced (barrel). The tubesheet area stresses can be approximated by specifying the number of holes, pitch, tube diameter and thickness, effective elastic modulus and effective Poisson’s ratio.

What kinds of analysis can I perform with 661PRO?

SOLUTION CAPABILITIES

  • Element library ( shell only )
  • Linear elastic analysis
  • 2007 Edition of ASME Section VIII-2 (and post 2007, i.e. 2010, 2013, 2015, 2017)

LOAD ANALYSIS

  • Weight, Operating, Occasional, and Pressure
  • Internal or external pressure
  • Piping loads applied to nozzles
  • Automatic API loads added to the nozzles
  • Multiple nozzles can be added (one analyzed at a time) with the loadings of each nozzle applied to the perforated tubesheet.

OTHER

  • MultiCore SuperNode Solver (64-bit solution that runs 2-4 times faster)
  • Automatic Generation of B31.3 SSIs or B31.1 replacement for .75i per B31J
  • Directives for EN13445 Local Stress Analysis

How do I get 661PRO?

661PRO v2.1 is only available with a license of FEPipe v10.1.  It is not sold as an independent program.
