Pressure vessel analysis using PV Elite. In cooperation with Hexagon PPM, the provider of PV Elite, we offer this training. PV Elite is the leading program for the calculation of pressure bearing components according to the ASME Code, British Standard, and European EN13445.. This is introductory-level product training aimed at persons who are new to PV Elite. The course is for pressure vessel and heat exchanger stress engineers/analysts who carry out pressure vessel and/or heat exchanger 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 several equipment configurations to various codes. It also covers other topics which should prove useful for the stress engineer in addition to output interpretation and the production of deliverables. The focus is on calculations according to ASME Section VIII Division 1. The typical calculation tasks related to pressure vessels will be covered. This training is the perfect opportunity for those who would like to become familiar with and get a thorough introduction to the software

The seminar language is English.

Pre-requisites for trainees who register for training:

  • Trainees should have an appreciation for Mechanical Engineering theory and principles. Qualifications would typically be a Degree or higher-level diploma or similar in Mechanical engineering, Chemical Engineering or relevant experience.

  • Training is delivered remotely, online, via MS TEAMS.

  • Training starts @ 09.00am CET and finishes @ 17.00pm CET each day, with 1hr for lunch, and two 15min breaks, one during the a.m. and one during the p.m.

  • Trainees need to use a computer with the following hardware and software spec.

  • The latest PV Elite software and a temporary licence (‘training.cci’) will be provided to all registered trainees. As there isn’t time during the training to do this, to enable trainees to install the software before the training starts, the materials will be supplied the week prior to the training. Full instructions will be provided on how to do this and help will be provided if required.

  • To allow time for printing, electronic copies of training materials will also be supplied the week prior to the training. Note. Training materials should not be copied, divulged or redistributed, under any circumstances.

  • On the last day, trainees are expected to complete and return Hexagon PPM’s training feedback form.

  • Trainees will receive a certificate from Hexagon PPM. Please note that full attendance on the course is required to receive a certificate.

Seminar Instructor:

Dipl.-Ing. Nevresa Frohnert | Tel.: 0201 74 72 75-10 | E-Mail: LinkedIn ASME

Dipl.-Ing. Nevresa FrohnertNevresa Frohnert is an experienced ASME Authorized Inspector Supervisor. She has detailed know-how regarding the design of pressure retaining items according to ASME Code Section I, IV and VIII-1 as well to American piping codes. In addition to that she is an expert for various European and international Standards and their application under PED. As a mechanical engineer with an additional degree in computer science she is ideally qualified to combine both disciplines and to work as an instructor for Code issues as well as for software applications. Her main field of activities is reviewing design documents including calculations, welding documentation, NDE requirements and other records for compliance with the applicable construction code. She is a specialist in the most commonly used pressure vessel and piping software in the plant engineering industry such as PV Elite, Compress, DIMy, VVD, NozzlePro, etc. The participants in her courses thus directly benefit from her practical and theoretical background.
