AXIL has a unique approach and specific expertise in providing design services & engineering software’s to OEM, EPCs and other consulting firms from different segments of Process Industry.

Nozzle-FEM is designed for stresses and flexibility calculation of nozzle-to-shell junctions using the Finite Element Method (FEM). The program also calculates nozzle’s allowable loads and estimates strength of the nozzle’s junctions for wide range of geometric configurations and operating conditions.


Analysis of stress state, calculation of flexibilities and allowable loads of nozzle junctions

Nozzle-FEM helps to provide higher level of the equipment safety along with reducing labour costs at the design stage. The program is recommended for designing and industrial safety review of oil and gas, refining, petrochemical, chemical, power and other industrial facilities.


Nozzle-FEM performs stress analysis


  • Nozzle-FEM supports CIF and flexibility calculation via semi analytic methods according to WRC107-79, WRC297-87 (Welding Research Council Bulletins No. 107, No. 297 “Local stresses in spherical and cylindrical casings caused by the external loads”) and BS5500-76 (British standard).

  • Codes: 1; ASME VIII div.1, 2; EN 13445- 3; GOST R 52857.1-2007 4; JB 4732-1995; 5; PNAE G-7-002-86 (for equipment and pipelines of nuclear power plants) for allowable stresses. Shell stress and stability analysis (according to GOST R 52857.2-2007) is also implemented.

  • This program supports CIF and flexibility calculation via semi analytic methods according to WRC107-79, WRC297-87 and BS-5000.
