Bentley® WinNOZL is a stand-alone, engineering application used for calculating local stresses at nozzle/vessel junctions, trunnion attachment points, clip connections and lug attachments on the vessel shell. Based on well-known engineering design standards like WRC, KHK, API and PD, WinNOZL helps engineers and designers quickly determine whether or not the wall of a pressure vessel, exchanger or tank can withstand piping loads on the nozzle or at clip and lug connections.

WinNOZL is installed from one executable. The license file received from Bentley BAC will initiate your specific application. WinNOZL - The standard configuration of WinNOZL includes these features:
¦ Internationally recognized design codes:
WRC 107, WRC 297, BS PD5500, API 650 and KHK 1 & 2
¦ Extensive material libraries for ASME VIII Div I, Div II and PD5500, 1998 ASME VIII code case 2290, 2000 ASME I, III & IV, PD5500/enquiry case 91, ASME materials to the PD5500, JIS, KHK
¦ JIS and DIN pipe property library
¦ Shell types: cylindrical, conical, spherical, semielliptical, and torispherical
¦ Nozzle attachment types: hollow or solid round, hollow or solid rectangular
¦ Shell deflections, rotations and stiffness values are calculated for all shell types per PD5500 Annex G for longitudinal, circumferential and radial loadings
