Hi, Is it possible to add a lateral support to a vertical pressure vessel connected to the shell? The legs are modelled and the buckling stress is high at the corner of the compensation pad. The lateral support at around 2/3rd height of the vessel will help.
We can add guide support only for the skirt supported vertical vessels. Refer steps given in below image to add guide support,
If you want this feature for leg/bracket supported vertical vessels as well then please reach out to AutoPIPE Vessel Idea Portal, raise your idea there. And depending on responses, we will try to incorporate this idea in upcoming versions of AutoPipe Vessel.
