Lloyd’s Register (LR), a global engineering, technical and business services organization that frequently performs third-party design appraisal review of complex equipment, was recently awarded a project to review the piping stress analysis.
LR was able to highlight some of the major non-compliance issues to the client, which their team greatly appreciated. Non-compliance issues included failure of nozzles in local load criterion and over-stress in leg support.
With software from Hexagon PPM, Lloyd’s Register could easily deal with design changes even with a quick turnaround. It was simple to perform multiple opening checks on the large quantity of nozzles on the equipment. The team could accurately evaluate the flanges with external piping loads.
