Relief System Design and Design Basis

Relief System Design and Design Basis is documenting how the loads and sizes of the pressure relief system, as well as inlet and outlet sizes, were determined. This includes a description of overpressure scenarios considered, the scenario that creates the largest load to be relieved, the assumptions used, and if the device meets a certain code.
