Calculate under pressure with MDESIGN process

MDESIGN process utilizes all the well-known advantages of the MDESIGN architecture to provide calculation modules for plant engineering and process engineering applications. Based on recognized technical literature and the DIN EN, ISO standards as well as the AD data sheets, MDESIGN process extends this basis for calculation in design and development. Integrated help and access to tables and databases guarantee fast application. Automatic and configurable documents are immediately available.

MDESIGN process


The calculation basis for the flange calculation in MDESIGN process is based on EN 1591 and the AD data sheets. With boundary conditions such as pressure, strength, temperature and acting forces, tasks can be described quickly. The graphically supported access to flange types, gasket variants, bolt types and the extensive material database enables intuitive, effective working.

The applications include

  • Flanges according to EN 1591
  • Flanges according to AD 2000
  • Flat ends and panels
  • Support brackets AD 2000 - S-series
  • Support frames


Additions with support frames and support brackets

Based on the AD data sheets of the S series, the local additional stresses in the pressure vessel wall in the area of the support bracket and the support bracket itself are analyzed. MDESIGN process also supports the dimensioning of the support legs on the basis of the S series with stress and stability verifications for the tank base, the base plates, the reinforcement plates and the legs themselves.


Selection made easy

Shapes, types and required properties are selected with a mouse click and chosen from the MDESIGN database
