CASTI Guidebook to Asme B31.3: Process Piping

Required Analysis Compliance with B These limits are for stress levels that can cause failure from a single loading, Sh, and those that can cause failure from repeated cyclic loadings, SA.

The presence or the absence of thermal insulation has no bearing t this temperature determination. Items requiring examination depend upon fluid service.

Weld examination requirements for gaging the structural integrity of welds. This goal is achieved through putting into place a set of engineering requirements deemed necessary for safe design and construction of piping systems.

No general proof can be offered to assure that the formula will yield accurate b331.3 conservative results. And, while it maybe customary to specify bend radii in terms of nominal pipe diameter, all too often, the custom at one location is not the same as the custom at another location. This limit on Sh for ferritic steels will not allow a B Although there are definite commercial reasons for the existence of trade names e.

Furthermore, the level of qualification I, II, or III should be stated in terms of requirements for specific parts of the work.

An example of the application of the allowable stress range equation 1a is as follows: Our ability to make such distinction has improved with the expansion of quality assurance and quality control concepts within the piping industry. Clearly, the stress range reduction factor-allowable stress range philosophy is tuidebook applicable for vibrating piping systems.


Designers may select another factor of safety depending on their particular conditions. What Extent of Examination is Required? This book includes supplementary information that the Code does not specifically address. A vibrating piping system see Figure 2. Great difficulties resulted in validating the inspection of boilers destined for out of state use. Can these conditions ever be exceeded?

Sc and Sh are the basic allowable stresses for the cold and hot conditions as defined in the Defintion and Basis for Allowable Stress section in Chapter 1.

Quality assurance, including quality audit. This is not the intent of the Code. All other terms are as defined earlier. Several tables have been included in this chapter to illustrate B This permits equations to be written in dimensionless format so when consistent units are used, the units may be either from the foot-pound or the metric system. When stating bend radius as a function of pipe diameter, the diameter of reference should also be stated e.

Documents Flashcards Grammar checker. Note that several of the terms described in c and d above are rooted in cross-country pipeline construction, where bends are normally used to accommodate changes of direction, or changes of elevation associated with the terrain, or to provide for expansion guidenook contraction of the pipeline with changes of temperature.

One answer to this question is to: What Items Must Be Examined? This will greatly assist the designer in applying the intent of the Code.


What extent of examination is required? These topics and methods of analysis are presented in Chapter 3 – Wind Loads and Earthquake.

And, for dimension critical applications, as an alternative to specification of tangent lengths, one could consider specifying center to end dimensions i. Once the design pressure and temperature have been established for a system, the question could be asked: On April 27,at the conclusion of the Civil War, 2, Union prisoners of war were released from Confederate prison camps at Vicksburg, Mississippi.

How then does one analyze a vibrating pipe? Systems of uniform size that have no more than two anchor points, no intermediate restraints, gguidebook fall within the limitation of the equation: Loss of power to homes on a cold winter night is an example of a reason to have very high plant reliability in B The sum of the longitudinal stresses due to pressure, weight, and other sustained loadings plus stresses cashi by occasional loads, such as wind or earthquake, may be as high as 1.

As an example, for radiographic exposure of circumferential butt welds in a process piping system, an ASNT Level I radiographic qualification should be adequate. The f factor although appropriate for the 18, cycles of this problem, is also suitable for 22, cycles as shown in Table These experiences have provided the practical engineering background needed to write this book.

Primary Quality Management Function: Flange rating procedures will be discussed later in this chapter.
