SME Code Calculations: Stayed Surfaces, Safety Valves, Furnaces
Here is what you will be able to do when you complete each objective:
1. Calculate the required thickness and design pressure for braced and stayedsurfaces in pressure vessels and the minimum required cross-sectional areaof a stay.2. Calculate the ligament efficiency method for two or more openings in thepressure boundary of a pressure vessel.3. Calculate the required size and capacity of safety valves and safety reliefvalves.4. Calculate required wall thicknesses of plain circular furnaces, circular flues,and corrugated furnaces.

Chapter 2
SME Code Calculations: Stayed Surfaces, Safety Valves, Furnaces
This chapter uses ASME Sections I, IV, and VIII-1. Each of these sectionscontains rules for braced and stayed surfaces, safety valves, and furnaces orcylinders under external loads.The objective of this chapter is not to produce a design engineer but a PowerEngineer with knowledge of the basic rationale of the Codes.
Stress on a vessel with internal pressure.
In cylindrical vessel shells the stress set up by internal pressure longitudinally isequal to twice the stress set up circumferentially.
vessel diameter internal pressureLongitudinal Stress =vessel wall thickness 2
××

vessel end area x internal pressureCircumferential Stress =vessel circumference x wall thickness

Example 1: Longitudinal and circumferential stress
Determine the stress longitudinally and circumferentially on the shell of a vessel4.5 m diameter, 35 mm thick and an internal pressure of 1350 kPa.

Note
: The longitudinal pressure exerts a stress on the metal circumferentially,and the radial pressure exerts a stress on the metal longitudinally.The strength of a vessel shell depends, therefore, on the
diameter
and
thickness
and is independent of the
length
.The candidate should consult the latest 2004 ASME Academic Codes Extract:Section I; Section II, Part D; Section IV; and Section VIII, Division 1, whilestudying this chapter.
