Calculating the temperature distribution in horizontal vessel saddle supports

In the process industries, with equipment operating at high temperatures, it is often required to know the temperature distribution in the horizontal-vessel saddles, and more specifically, the temperature at the saddle base. Cases where such a need may arise include:
• Selecting the correct type of antifriction material under a sliding saddle when high temperatures could be a concern
• Where the supporting structure integrity could be influenced by high temperatures transferred from the vessel through the saddles
• Selecting the correct material for the saddle plates.
