In my opinion nozzle is a connection to a pressure vessel. Node is the junction of structural supports.
There is probably a more proper description given in various specifications.

I am interested in hearing other replies

A nozzle is straightforward, a node is an oblique stub attachment, sometimes known as lateral joints.

A node for pressure vessel can be understood as well as the junction the longitudinal weld and circumferential of the differents parts of a shell, head, ect... i.e. "T" configuration of the welds.

Laurent, I have never heard that before. Do you have a source of reference?

Steven,

"7) All nodes shall be 100% examined," extract from a project procedure.

By checking the code (GOST R52630) 8.7.3
b) locations of junction (crossings) of welded joints;

So shall I understand it's not the appropriate word?

Hi Laurent,
I would understand a node on a pressure vessel to be exactly as shown in the image provided by Volodymyr.

I cannot comment on the excerpts you have quoted without having knowledge of them. However from what you posted I cannot see the link between an intersection of two welds in different directions being called nodes.

Athulraj

If your questıon relates to PCN UT qualıfıcatıon then Volodymyr's and Steve's responses have explaıned all. However as you have not been specıfıc as to the source or context whıch ınspıred your query then you must also consıder Laurent's contrıbutıon.

During nodes composition, tubular for jacket or plate for modules and structures, I never heard say the word “Nozzle”. By contrast in pressure components environment I have never seen use the word “node” for a nozzle, even when the nozzle configuration was variable geometry similar to the jacket nodes. I'm fine in the Dent definition: apparently terminologies which belong to two separate worlds, different from those indicated by Laurent.

A curiosity: the idea of “T” configuration as a butt weld joint bent at 90 degrees is still the first mental step for UT inspection of nozzles joint et similar. In this case UT nozzle control will be considered as 'extension' of the UT butt weld, with some benefit more than the UT butt weld due scanning ability from not-beveled side that puts maximum emphasis defects that open thickness.

I don't know whether it brings anything to the arguement but I looked up 'Node' in an (online) dictionary and as well as meaning a knob, protruberebce or swelling which closely relates to our English language understanding of what is meant in welding parlance, it also means ' A point or area where two lines, paths, or parts intersect or branch off' which may well be the meaning meant in Laurent's explanation.

Jon,

I think you're right.
Node, knob, in french "noeud" can be tranlated as a cross of welds in the same plane

So what is the exact word for the cross weld of longi, circular weld?

I would refer to this as a T-junction.
