Economical and safe design of pressure vessels applying new modern steels (ECOPRESS)

Objective

Pressure vessels (PV) business is a world wide market. This challenge to the European PV-industry may be encountered by a research strategy focusing on the utilization of new advanced steels and improved and safe design. High strength and high toughness steels with, in case of DUPLEX, even excellent corrosion resistance and good weldability are available from the developments of European steel industry during the past 3 decades. Only today the European design rules for PV-design practically exclude these steels from application because of missing design technologies. The research project will therefore work out conditions to remove obstacles and unnecessary conservatism by applying modern design by analysis methods for the full exploitation of properties of the new steels. The works will cover the full range from design to fabrication, testing and operation of PV. Recommendations will be derived that will allow more economical design.
