NozzlePRO Training Course

NozzlePRO is a template-driven Finite Element software package, specifically designed for the needs of the piping and pressure vessel industries and engineers. With its easy to use interface NozzlePRO allows engineers to analyze a wide range of typical pressure vessel and piping geometries with minimal effort compared to general FEA tools due to the parametric design philosophy.


NozzlePRO, like FE/Pipe, is part of the PRG (Paulin Research Group) software suite.


NozzlePRO automatically creates the model geometry, element mesh, applied loads, and boundary conditions based on standard dimensions. Results are presented in terms of ASME VIII-2 requirements instead of generalized stress results. In NozzlePRO the focus is on nozzles, supports, saddles and skirt connections.


The course is given by one of the experienced consultants from DRG who regularly use NozzlePRO first hand for their consultancy projects.

Intended for:

  • Users of NozzlePRO software package
  • Users of other PRG software such as FE/Pipe
  • Learning about the capabilities of NozzlePRO
  • Those conducting ASME VIII-2 assessments
