Pipe Pressure-Thickness Tool

Piping thickness, MAWP (MAOP) and MDMT calculations are determined for straight pipe, elbows and miter bends in accordance with ASME B31.1, B31.3, B31.4 and B31.8 Piping Codes for power, process, liquid transportation, and gas distribution piping, respectively. A materials database for these code is provided. Supplemental loads, i.e. forces and moments, may be specified. Two Options are provided.
 

  • Design Option – Determine the required thickness, recommended nominal thickness and MDMT given the geometry, materials of construction, design pressure, design temperature and supplemental loads
  • In-Service Option – Determine the retirement thickness, MAWP (MAOP) and MDMT given the geometry, materials of construction, nominal thickness, design temperature, supplemental loads, metal loss and corrosion allowance.

Insulation Thickness

Determine the insulation thickness of a cylindrical or spherical component based on one of the following criteria;
 

  • Economic Thickness
  • Personnel Protection
  • Energy Conservation or
  • Condensation Control

 
Insulation thickness tables are also generated that show insulation thickness requirements for different diameters. These calculations are based on the data provided by the Gas Processors Suppliers Association (GPSA) data book.

ASME B16.5 PIPE Flanges

The pressure-temperature rating for a standard flange manufactured in accordance with ASME B16.5 or B16.47 is determined. The pressure-temperature rating is performed according to a specific edition of ASME B16.5 and B16.47. A materials database for these codes is provided. Three Options are provided:
 

  • Option 1 – Given a pressure, temperature and material of construction, the required ASME flange class is determined
  • Option 2 – Given a flange class, pressure and material of construction, the maximum temperature is determined
  • Option 3 – Given the flange class, temperature and material of construction, a maximum pressure is determined

Burst Pressure

Calculate the burst pressure or a thickness that will result in a burst given a pressure for a cylinder and a sphere based on the analysis procedure developed by Svensson [1]. Svensson’s method is applicable to the full range of radius to wall thickness ratios, i.e. both thick and thin cylindrical and spherical shells may be analyzed. Svensson’s method makes use of a stress-strain model that includes the effects of strain hardening. The material model used is the Prager stress-strain curve model [2]. A materials database is provided. Two Options are provided.
 

  • Option 1 – Determine the burst pressure given the geometry, materials of construction and temperature
  • Option 2 – Determine the thickness that will result in a burst for a specified pressure given the geometry, materials of construction and temperature

Pipe Span Pressure Thickness

Calculations to determine the required thickness or MAWP (MAOP) of a pipe span are performed such that a user-specified maximum deflection and slope are not exceeded. Calculations are performed in accordance with the ASME B31.1, B31.3, B31.4 and B31.8 Piping Codes. A materials database for these codes is provided. Concentrated loads can be included and adjusted to model flange junctions, valves and the weight of a person. Distributed loads automatically included in the calculations are the weight of the pipe, insulation, and fluid contents. Longitudinal, circumferential and stress at the supports are computed in addition to pipe properties including metal cross-sectional area, section modulus, moment of inertia and weight. In the weight calculation, the additional weight due to insulation, refractory, and the fluid is accounted for. If refractory properties are input, a modified moment of inertia is computed to model the increase in stiffness due to the specified refractory thickness and its modulus of elasticity. Two Options are provided.
 

  • Design Option – Determine the required thickness and recommended nominal thickness given the geometry, materials of construction, design pressure, design temperature and applied loadings
  • In-Service Option – Determine the retirement thickness given the geometry, materials of construction, design pressure, design temperature and applied loadings

Buried Pipeline Crossing

Design crossings for steel pipelines located beneath railroads and highways in accordance with API 1102. The effects on the stresses in the pipeline from highways, either paved or unpaved, and railroads, including any length and width of track or weight of railcar, can be determined. The applied surface design pressure and total effective stress are calculated, and the results determine whether the steel pipe can withstand the ground surface pressure that the crossing produces.

Branch

Branch reinforcement calculations for integrally and pad reinforced fabricated connections (i.e. run pipes and headers) are performed in in accordance with ASME B31.1, B31.3, B31.4 and B31.8 Piping Codes for power, process, liquid transportation, and gas distribution piping, respectively. A materials database for these code is provided. Two Options are provided.
