Two subsequent editions asmr published, ASA B 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. An example of the application of this equation follows: Note that Sh is not exceeded, but should the design conditions be changed?

Other code sections followed during the next eleven years: When the plant owner designates a piping system to be high pressure, all the requirements, Chapter IX of B To keep the Code current with developments in piping design and all related disciplines, revisions, supplements, and new editions of the Code were published as follows: The f factor although appropriate for b311.3 18, cycles of this problem, is also suitable for 22, cycles as shown in Table Here, guieebook safety of the general public is affected.

However, with all this legislation by the states, no two had the catsi rules. What Extent of Examination is Required? This guidance on limitations is provided relative to two operating regimes, these operating regimes are fluid service categories and severe cyclic conditions.


High Pressure Piping B March 20,after explosion. In Brockton, Massachusetts on March 20,the R. The answers to two questions could be helpful in selecting the governing code section: The states and provinces that have made this Code mandatory as of mid are: Executive B331.3 John E. Design temperature method of determination other than fluid temperature is permitted provided this temperature is established by heat transfer calculation procedures consistent with vasti practice.

What reliability do you want the plant to have? Before examining tuidebook in detail, a few comments regarding bend types may be useful to readers with no bending experience. Experience shows, however, that the level of understanding among users varies widely and is often limited to a few grades of carbon steel or to a specific alloy system employed by the user on a regular basis.

These stress limits are based on the use-fraction sum rule, which states: Rather than publish two code sections, it giidebook then decided to combine the requirements of B Construct the time fraction table Table 2. The elbow will not be over stressed and the design pressure and temperature will not have to be increased.

See metric conversion table, Appendix 2. The answer is yes, they can 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. In addition, prohibitions and warnings about unsafe designs and practices are also included.


With piping materials, generic grouping based on alloy content is most popular. As part of the materials listing, the Code includes allowable stress values as a function of design temperature, and some helpful notes relating to material behavior under various service conditions [Tables A-1 and A-2, and Appendix F].

There are no provisions for allowing Sh to be based on creep properties of any material. Plants designed to B With more than 20 years of domestic and international experience with consulting engineers and operating companies, Mr. How long do you want the plant to last? What is the Code saying? Typical vibrating stresses would be in the range of 1, to 2, psi.

Also, tighter tolerances may be required for bends requiring passage b3.13 internal inspection tools. This edition first appeared in An example of the application of this equation follows. All correspondence should be sent to the author in care of:
