Updates in the field of jacketed vessels, such as the possibility of forcing a component indicating that it is covered by a jacket and the awaited option of being able to add nozzles on the half-pipes
Additions to the calculation report which allow a detailed determination of the weights and of the transposition of the loads applied to the nozzles on vertical appliances
We have introduced support for some new sketches for rectangular externally reinforced vessels according to ASME
We have introduced the set of loads on the nozzles according to API 660 and the possibility of defining completely customized ones using a simple Excel spreadsheet.
