The performances of calculator and Finite Elements codes enable nowadays to perform low cost and very accurate 3D simulations of thermo-mechanical behavior of pressure equipment. It enables an accurate analysis of the leak-tightness problems. In this paper, we describe flanges, heat exchangers, and valves modeling as examples. Then we present the economical interest of the application of such approach.
