ASME B31G-2012

These tables are carried over without change from earlier editions of ASME B31G asmee have been supplemented by the addition of tables in metric units. The request for an interpretation should be clear and unambiguous. Wall Thickness Fabrication Tolerance Type tfu: The Committee Pages can be found at http: Requests that are not in this format may be rewritten in the appropriate format by the Committee b13g to being answered, which may inadvertently change the intent of the original request.

The methods and criteria provided herein do not address circumferential failure due to high longitudinal tensile stresses. The inquirer may also include any plans or drawings that are necessary to explain the question; however, they should not contain proprietary names or information. No part of this document may be b31v in any form, in an electronic retrieval system or otherwise, without the prior written permission of the publisher.

Not all methods give b1g numerical results or consistent degrees of conservatism. The following guideline is suggested with reference to Fig.

High longitudinal stresses in tension acting on metal loss having a significant circumferential extent, in unrestrained piping, could change the failure mode from longitudinal to circumferential. Breen, Becht Engineering Co. For crack type defects the NG crack defect calculators are recommended. The nominal b31 diameter and wall thickness or the measured pipe diameter and wall thickness can be used for the ASME B31G checks.


Methods employed for clustering of inline inspection anomalies should be validated by field verification of actual flaw dimensions and spacing.

User Defined Outside Diameter schedtype: Our representatives adme ready to assist you in the following areas: Care should be taken when cleaning corroded areas of a pressurized pipe. The tables are carried over without change from previous editions of B31G and have been supplemented by the addition of tables in metric units.

It is noted that Sflow was defined as 1.

The flow stress can be calculated as either 1. Frikken, Becht Engineering Co.

Dimension t is the uncorroded pipe wall thickness. It is intended that a Level 3 evaluation be conducted by a technical specialist having appropriate expertise in the subject of fitness-for-service assessment. If the nominal wall thickness is not listed, use the column for the next thinner wall. For submerged pipelines, or to calculate the allowable pressure at a reference elevation, use the level 1 and level 2 calculators including elevation.

If using a grid pattern, the analysis must be repeated along each meridian to establish the governing solution. The tables were designed to provide a minimum factor of safety of 1.


Please fill this form, we will try to respond as soon as possible. Level 2 evaluations shall be carried out using a procedure similar to the ten 7 ASME B31G and external forces; b31t conditions and constraints; ovality, deformations, misalignments, and discontinuities; material stress—strain characteristics; and effects of the flaw on the overall distribution of loads and stresses.

B31J Pipeline Personnel Qualification. Also, the combination of hoop stress due to internal pressure and longitudinal compression could interact to lower the failure pressure in the metal loss area. The Standards Committee that approved the Manual was balanced to assure that individuals from competent and concerned interests have had an asmd to participate. Such errata shall be used on the date posted.


Locate the table corresponding to the size of the pipe, D. 3b1g

Determine applicable pipe material properties from appropriate records. Methods accounting for uncertainty in indirectly sized flaws include increasing the flaw dimension in order to account for detection tool error, or statistical analysis axme the probable flaw sizes or risk of failure. October 24, The next edition of this Manual is scheduled for publication in We need your help!

They were calculated from the equations for a Level 1 evaluation in accordance with the original B31G methodology. Upon request, the B31 Standards Committee will render an interpretation of any requirement of the Standard. Tatar, FM Ame K. Each interpretation applies either to the latest Edition at the b31t of issuance of the interpretation or the Edition stated in the reply. A Level 1 evaluation is also suitable for use in prioritizing metal-loss anomalies identified by inline inspection.

Similar issues should be considered in developing a suitable safety factor as were described for a Level 1 or Level 2 analysis. There is no single safety factor that is suitable for all types of pipeline construction, for all modes of pipeline operation, or for all types of asmf or anomalies. It requires for input a detailed longitudinal distribution or profile of metal loss. The Effective Area Method is expressed as follows: Select an evaluation method and calculate the estimated failure stress, SF.
