ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code

Ansys FEA simulation is used extensively to show compliance with the ASME Boiler and Pressure vessel code.


The advanced thermal and structural capabilities permit a high level of physics to be applied, generating confidence in results.

For many systems, obtaining the accurate heat flow and temperature distribution is critical. Ansys’ combined fluid, thermal, and structural capabilities facilitate the simulation of complex systems.
