Editing Multiple Load Cases-

Use the Group Edit view of the Static Analysis – Load Case Editor to update values on multiple load cases at one time. This view saves you valuable time as you can make global changes to load cases, rather than having to edit each load case individually.

To perform a group edit of multiple load cases

1. Open a CAESAR II job.
2. Run error checking or the analysis, and then select Static Analysis.
3. Click Group Edit in the upper-right corner of the Static Analysis – Load Case Editor.

Static Analysis – Load Case Editor List View (the Default)

The List view shows all load cases in list format, making it easy to see a full view of load cases as you work.

Static Analysis – Load Case Editor Group Edit View 

The Group Edit view could be considered a bulk editor for all your load cases. This enables you to make mass changes to any selected load cases with just a few simple clicks.

To use the Group Edit view for changing load cases:

1.    Select multiple load cases and click Group Edit.

The software preserves the load case selections you made in the List view and keeps them highlighted in the Group Edit view.

2.    Change any field values in this view and the software updates all the load cases you previously selected.

3.    By toggling back to the List view, you can see the changes that were applied to each of the selected load cases.

Using the new Group Edit view can save a lot of time, and it only takes a few clicks.

Performing Fatigue Analysis on Nozzles in PV Elite

Performing fatigue analysis on nozzles using PV Elite is a simple process. Let us go through these steps to bring your fatigue information into PV Elite.

Once the Load Cases tab is active, click on the button that is next to ‘Fatigue Analysis’ and the Fatigue Pressure/Cycle Data Input screen appears. In the box at the top called ‘Number of Fatigue Case to Process,’ enter the number of cases you want considered. Then enter the pressure range and number of cycles for each range. Finally, click on the button at the bottom of the screen that says ‘Save Cases and Exit.’ At this point, PV Elite has all the information it needs to perform the fatigue analysis on any nozzles you add to your model.

Go back to the General Data Input tab where you find your model on the screen. When you add a nozzle to the vessel using the usual nozzle input screen, notice that at the bottom of screen the check box ‘Fatigue Calc ?’ Make sure this box is checked, see below:

Now, for the PD5500 and EN13445 models, the drop down list labeled ‘Weld Class’ beside the check box becomes active.  Choose a suitable letter (see PD 5500 Annex C for details concerning fatigue classes). Note, class C is the least severe, and W the most severe.  Enter the rest of your nozzle data, ensuring the nozzle is adequately reinforced in the normal way.

When you have finished entering your vessel data and have completed building your model, you can press the calculation button (running man). The output processor will include a fatigue analysis report. That report will contain the full analysis for all of the nozzles on which you indicated to perform fatigue analysis:
