A Comparison of Design by Analysis Techniques for Evaluating Nozzle-to-Shell Junctions per ASME Section VIII Division 2
Phillip Prueter presented A Comparison of Design by Analysis Techniques for Evaluating Nozzle-to-Shell Junctions per ASME Section VIII Division 2 at the ASME Pressure Vessels & Piping Conference.
Below is a brief outline of his presentation:
- Part 5 of ASME Section VIII Division 2 offers several design by analysis (DBA) techniques for evaluating pressure retaining equipment for Code compliance using detailed computational stress analysis results.
- These procedures can be used to check components for protection against multiple failure modes including plastic collapse, local failure, buckling, and cyclic loading.
- In particular, this study investigates the use of these methods for evaluating nozzle-to-shell junctions subjected to internal pressure and nozzle end loads.
- Specifically, elastic stress analysis, limit load analysis, and elastic-plastic stress analysis are utilized to check for protection against plastic collapse, and computational results for a given load case are compared.
- Additionally, the twice elastic slope method for evaluating protection against plastic collapse is utilized as an alternate failure criterion to supplement elastic-plastic analysis results.
- The goal of these comparisons is to highlight the difference between elastic stress checks and the non-linear analysis methodologies outlined in ASME Section VIII Division 2.
- Finally, commentary on the applicability of performing the Code-mandated check for protection against ratcheting for vessels that do not operate in cyclic service is provided.
