The objective of this project is to develop a simple, time saving, user-friendly and inhouse software to support design system for pressure vessel design. Pressure vessels are used in a wide number of industries, such as the power generation industry, chemical industry and petrochemical industry. Pressure vessel is a container which carry, store or receive fluids with a pressure difference between outside and inside. Pressure vessels often have a combination of high pressure and high temperature or in some cases flammable fluids and highly radioactive materials. Because of such hazards, it is crucial that the design be such that no leakage can occur. A good design of pressure vessels need to be done before manufacturing or purchasing so that the selected pressure vessels can deliver the task for any industry. The scope of study was to do literature review of the mechanical design of pressure vessel based on the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII Division 1. Literature reviews of the equations involved in designing the pressure vessels and finally develop the support system for the pressure vessel design using MatLab r2009a. The methods used to achieve the objective of this project are, a) Conducting literature review of the type of pressure vessels, equations for the design of pressure vessel; b) Develop the support system for pressure vessel design using MatLab r2009a. This project concluded that the objective of this project is achieved but it is recommended that the project should be developed further in the future as the possibilities to create the support system for pressure vessel design are high.
