Reference Data

Type unique connecting node numbers that do not exist on any pipe element on the Hanger Auxiliary Data tab in the Hanger Connecting Node box. The hanger is designed to act with one end at the hanger node and with one end at the hanger-connecting node.

Thermal growth of the hanger-connecting node can be specified on any pipe element.

In the following example, the hanger at node 9 is supported from a structural steel extension (node 1009) from a large vertical vessel. The vessel at the point where the hanger is attached grows thermally in the plus Y direction by 3.5 inches.
