CerebroPV - Pressure Vessel Software

The CerebroPV program was developed to help the design and analysis of pressure vessels per ASME Code Section VIII, Division 1. The program wizard format allows users to enter data very fast, in safe mode and with a short learning time. The program can design pressure vessels under internal or external pressure with the following components:

  • Elliptical heads.
  • Torispherical heads.
  • Conical and toriconical heads, with cone-cylinder analysis per Appendix 1-7.
  • Hemispherical heads.
  • Unstayed welded flat covers per UG-34.
  • Cylindrical shells.
  • Nozzles, with large opening analysis per Appendix 1-7.
  • Legs supports for vertical vessels.
  • Saddles supports for horizontal vessels (Zick analysis).
  • Wind loads per UBC-97
  • Earthquake loads per UBC-97
  • NR-13 report for Brazilian users.


CerebroPV software is a multilanguage software. The current version has a dictionary to translate forms and reports to English and Portuguese languages. CerebroPV uses Multilizer technology that allows users to change quickly the software operating language.

Commercial and Calculations Reports

Commercial and calculations reports can be create in Portuguese or English language. The reports can be viewed in a dedicated viewer, or can be generated as MS-Word documents. To generate MS-Word documents, MS-Word version 2000 to 2016 must be installed in the same computer of CerebroPV.

Units System

Users can enter data, or generate commercial reports, with different units systems. Program allows users to define, edit or change several units systems.

Reports calculations can be create using customary units (in and psi), international metric system (mm and MPa) or technical metric system (mm and kgf),according the requisites of the ASME VIII-1 edition adopted in the calculations.

Responsibility of Design

The high degree of automation of the system calculation does not leave out the background and sensibility of the designer. Perhaps any trained user may fully operate the program; only a qualified professional can design a pressure vessel in accordance with the legislation.

The calculations of pressure vessel, and others structural elements, using a computer system not transfer or exempt the technical responsibility of qualified engineer. The qualified professional must check, complete or correct, if necessary, any calculation report generate by program.
