The sum of the longitudinal stresses due to pressure, weight, and other sustained loadings plus stresses produced by occasional loads, such as wind or earthquake, may be as high as 1.

The boat was totally destroyed; 1, of the passengers were killed. Continuing to study the conditions for pressure-temperature variations, we find one of the most misinterpreted and misapplied statements of the Code. Guidebookk summary, the three primary methods of identifying materials are: Inspection Versus Examination Under B Codes would find little acceptance if their techniques and procedures were beyond the understanding of the piping engineer.
The allowable stress limit for SL casyi on normal operating conditions is the hot guidbook, Sh, which is: However, changes to direction of flow may also be made through the use of pipe bends. Trade Names and Proprietary Designations Trade names are used by manufacturers to uniquely identify their materials and products. Note that most QC manuals have sections devoted specifically to completion of examinations, such as material control, welding control, NDE control, pressure testing, and record keeping.
Hardness and surface finish, Brinell and Rockwell C hardness have no known metric equivalent. 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.

In more practical terms, cold bending of carbon and low alloy steels is carried out at temperatures in the black heat range where the material is ferritic in structure. Weld examination requirements for gaging the structural integrity of welds. Some factor of safety is included in this equation to account for the simplified technique of combining these stresses. This requirement is mainly of a practical nature and aims to avoid any work constraints imposed by the restricted access or interference created by repads or saddles.

The types of plants for which B A vibrating piping system see Figure 2. With these three design conditions known, the owner will have sufficient information for deciding whether or not to impose high pressure piping requirements.
Because of the wide field involved, Section Committee B31 comprised some forty different engineering societies, industries, government bureaus, institutions, and trade associations. Definition The definition of a Category M Fluid Service is a fluid service in which the potential for personnel exposure to toxic fluids is judged to be significant.
Before examining bends in detail, a few comments regarding bend types may be useful to readers with no bending experience. An example of the application of the allowable stress range equation 1a is as follows: Design temperature method of determination other than fluid temperature is permitted provided this temperature is established by heat transfer calculation procedures consistent with industry practice.
The boilers of these early steam engines were little more than tea kettle type arrangement where direct heating of the boiler wall was the method used to generate the steam. The metric equivalent of this procedure was not available at the time of this writing. Designers must be aware that more than one design condition may exist in any single piping system.
Grades are described in terms of several standardized alphanumeric designation systems that depend upon the alloy system under consideration, and are described later in this chapter.
However, the search would be considerably less difficult if the user understood the following basic layout of Table A The above questions look simple enough, but finding the answers can be time consuming and frustrating, especially since examination terminology is foreign, inconsistent, and confusing to many users.
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. All other terms are as defined earlier. Those that can be judged adequate by comparison with previously analyzed systems, and 3. Also, note that minimum tangent lengths may be required for bend manufacturing purposes e.
In fact, with modern equipment, substantial economic benefits can be derived from the use of bends, by virtue of reduced fitting, welding, and nondestructive examination NDE costs. Although there may appear to be similarities between the actual work of inspectors and examiners on the job, it is important to be able to distinguish the responsibilities associated with each activity. In the ten-year period from to3, boiler explosions were recorded, an average of one per day.
There are endless cross references to explore during problem solving and the subject matter often overlaps several technical disciplines. The key components of the design conditions are the design pressure and the design temperature.
Inanother spectacular explosion occurred in which 27 boilers out of a battery of 36 burst in rapid succession at a coal mine near Shamokin, Pennsylvania, totally destroying the entire facility and killing 6 people. One answer to this question is to: See metric conversion table, Appendix 2.
Clearly, the stress range reduction factor-allowable stress range philosophy is not applicable for vibrating piping systems. We would like to hear from you.
