Establishing Fracture Mechanics-Based Minimum Allowable Temperatures for Low-Temperature Applications of ASME B31.3 Piping

by Kraig S. Shipley, P.E. / Seetha Ramudu Kummari, Ph.D., P.E. / September 2018


To simplify the brittle fracture study of piping systems and to quantify the benefit of PWHT on MAT for our clients and the industry, E2G developed step-by-step Level 1 and Level 2 procedures for establishing MAT for low-temperature applications of ASME B31.3 piping based on state-of-the-art fracture mechanics methodology published in Welding Research Council (WRC) Bulletin 562.
