AD Merkblätter 2000

Rules for pressure vessels according to AD Merkblätter; AD2000

storage tanks and plants according to the AD Merkblätter 2000.
This piece of engineering software is suitablefor both vessel design and component analysis.
AD-2000 is also calculating geometric properties such as volumes and centers of gravity.

Calculation can be according to the following rules:

AD Merkblätter – Series B
– B1/B9 Cylindrical/spherical shells with openings
– B2/B9 Conical sections with openings
– B3/B9 Formed heads with openings
– B4 Bolted heads
– B5 Flat ends and plates
Flat ends and plates with/without marginal moment
Tubesheets with flanged extension
Round fixed tube sheets
Round U-tube tube sheets
Round floating tube sheets
Round tube sheets (fixed with expansion joint)
Flanged extensions of tube sheets
– B6 Shells under external pressure
– B7/B8 Flange connections (DIN V2505 included)
– Slip on flanges
– Welding neck flanges
– Loose type flanges calculation
– Full faced flanges of bolts
