The fluid being stored may undergo a change of state inside the pressure vessel as in case of steam boilers or it may combine with other reagents as in a chemical plant. r. INTRODUTION: The pressure vessels (i.. to wall thickness. gun barrels.. U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 4 .g. the thin wall pressure vessel can be used. Two types of analysis are commonly applied to pressure vessels. Both types of analysis are discussed here. The material of pressure vessels may be brittle such that cast iron or ductile such as mild steel. open ended cylinder. Cylindrical or spherical pressure vessels (e. The second method is based on elasticity solution and is always applicable regardless of the r/t ratio and can be referred to as the solution for “thick wall” pressure vessels. the material comprising the vessel is subjected to pressure loading. The pressure vessels are designed with great care because rupture of pressure vessels means an explosion which may cause loss of life and property. When the pressure vessel is exposed to this pressure.e.e. t. of r/t≥10. boilers and tanks) are commonly used in industry to carry both liquids and gases under pressure. or sphere) as well as the applied pressure. from all directions. although for most engineering applications. hydraulic cylinders. The normal stresses resulting from this pressure are functions of the radius of the element under consideration. closed end cylinder. cylinder or tanks) are used to store fluids under pressure. and hence stresses. the shape of the pressure vessel (i. pipes. The most common method is based on a simple mechanics approach and is applicable to “thin wall” pressure vessels which by definition have a ratio of inner radius.

b) Class 2: vessels which do not fall in the scope of clas1 and class 3 are to be termed as class2 vessels. The maximum thickness of shell is limited to 38 mm. and they are built for working pressures at temperatures not exceeding 250 c and unfired . Vessels designed for the operation below -20 C and Vessels intended for any other operation not stipulated in the code. U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 5 . c) class 3: there are vessels for relatively light duties having plate thickness not in excess of 16 mm. class3 vessels are not recommended for services at temperatutre below 0c. Classification of Pressure Vessels Unfired Cylindrical Pressure Vessels (Classification Based on IS 2825-1969) a) Class 1 : Vessels that are to contain lethal or toxic substances.

Categories Of Welded Joints The term categories specifies the location of the joint in a vessels. to nozzles or to communicating chambers and any welded joints connecting one side plate to another side plate of a flat sided vessel. These categories are intended for specifying the special requirements regarding the joint type and degree of inspection. c) Category c: welded joints connecting flanges. to formed heads . d) Category d: welded joints connecting communicating chambers or nozzles to main sheels . IS-2825 specifies 4 categories of welds. (Refer fig.) a) category A: longitudinal welded joints within the main sheet. but not the type of joint. nozzles and transitions in diameter including joints between the transtations and a cylinder at either the large of small end.to heads and to flat sided vessels and those joints connecting nozzles to communicating chambers. circumferential welded joints connecting from heads to main shells to nozzles and to communicating chambers. b) Category B: circumferential welded joints with in the main shell. tubes sheets and flat heads to main shells . communicating chambers .

LOADINGS Loadings or forces are the “causes” of stress in pressure vessels. the stresses from the inward radial load could be either a primary local stress or secondary stress. Membrane stress in the knuckle area of the head. The nonuniform portion of the stress distribution in a thick-walled vessels due to internal pressure. Thermal stresses in cladding or weld overlay. (stress concentration). The stresses due to pressure and wind are primary membrane stresses. Thermal stress in a wall caused by a sudden change in the surface temperature. Loadings may be applied over a large portion (general area) of the vessel or over a local area of the vessel. Membrane stress due to local relenting loads. It is primary local stress if it is produced from an unrelenting load or a secondary stress if produced by a relenting load. Peak Stress F Stress at the corner of discontinuity. Stress due to notch effect. etc. Secondary bending stress. Qb Bending stress at the gross structural discontinuity: nozzle. (relenting loadings only).. General and local loads can produce membrane and bending stresses. lugs. O the other hand. Discontinuity stresses at stiffening or support ring. The stress variation of the radial stress due to internal pressure in thick-walled vessels. The stresses applied more or less continuously and uniformly across an entire section of the vessel are primary stresses. These stresses are additive and define the overall state of stress in the vessel or component. U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 9 .

Cumulative damage leads to instability of vessel by plastic deformation. Division 2. Stress rupture—Creep deformation as a result of fatigue or cyclic loading. Brittle fractures have occurred in vessels made of low carbon steel in the 40-50 F range during hydrotest where minor flaws exist. U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 12 .. incremental collapse is cyclic strain accumulation or cumulative cyclic deformation. inexperienced operations or maintenance personnel.

Stress corrosion—It is well know that chlorides cause stress corrosion cracking in stainless steels. likewise caustic service can cause stress corrosion cracking in carbon steel. thick. The process of compressing layers is called auto-frettage from the French word meaning “selfhooping. thick and successive layers are applied. This creates compressive stress in the core. The core is stressed into plastic range but below ultimate strength. Multi-wall—Begins with a core about ½ in. Materials selection is critical in these services. SPECIAL PROBLEMS Thick Walled Pressure Vessels Mono-bloc. Outer layers about the same thickness are successive “ shrunk fit” over the core. Corrosion can reduce fatigue life by pitting the surface and propagating cracks. Bands or forged rings are slipped outside and then the core is expanded hydraulically. Each layer is vented (except the core) and welded individually with no overlapping welds. Multilayer—Begins with a core about ½ in.” Multilayer auto-frettage—Begins with a core about ½ in. The outer rings are maintained at a margin below yield strength. which is relaxed during pressurization. to 2 in.

Material selection and fatigue properties are the major considerations.Solid vessel wall. o o High Strain—Low cyclic fatigue is strain-governed and occurs mainly in lowerstrength/high-ductile materials.

THERMAL STRESS Whenever the expansion or contraction that would occur normally as a result of heating or cooling an object is prevented. Only two longitudinal welds are used. the outer bands induces compressive stress in the core. Vessels 5 to 6 ft in diameter for pressure up to 5000psi have been made in this manner. Fatigue analysis can also be a result of thermal vibrations as well as other loadings. They can however. diameter and change in directions would all have different displacements if allowed to expand freely. The stresses in the respective parts at or near the juncture are called discontinuity stresses. However. which is relaxed during pressurization. one attaching the sheet to the core and the final closures weld. Discontinuity stresses do become an important factor in fatigue design where cyclic loading is a consideration. Discontinuity stresses are “ secondary stresses” and are self-limiting. Thermal stresses are “secondary stresses” because they are self-limiting. DISCONTINUITY STRESSES Vessel sections of different thickness. Core is wrapped with steel cables in tension until the desired autofrettage is achieved. cause failure due to excessive deformations. Coil wrapped vessels: Begin with a core that is subsequently wrapped or coiled with a thin steel sheet until the desired thickness is obtained. U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 14 . material. the vessel is in cyclic service. Wire wrapped vessels: Begin with inner core of thickness less than required for pressure. they must deflect and rotate together. FATIGUE ANALYSIS When a vessel is subject to repeated loading that could cause failure by the development of a progressive fracture. The stress is always caused by some form of mechanical restrain. thermal stresses are developed. Thermal stresses will not cause failure by rupture. since they are connected in a continuous structure.

**Common Decisions to Both Types of Fatigue Analysis
**

Once the decision on which type of fatigue analysis to perform, Stress Life or Strain Life, there are 4 other topics upon which your fatigue results are dependent upon. Input decisions that are common to both types of fatigue analyses are listed below: • Loading Type • Mean Stress Effects

U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 78

• Multiaxial Stress Correction • Fatigue Modification Factor Within Mean Stress Effects, the available options are quite different. In the following ections, we will explore all of these additional decisions. These input decision trees for fatigue analysis in both both Stress Life and Strain Life are outlined in Figures 1 and 2. in detail below.

data is not sorted into bins until after partial damages are found. For Stress Life. In quick counting. Strictly speaking. To help control this. But instead of using a single load ratio to calculate alternating and mean values. cumulative damage calculations (including cycle counting such as Rainflow and damage summation such as Miner’s rule) need to be done to determine the total amount of fatigue damage and which cycle combinations cause thatdamage. proportional loading within the ANSYS Fatigue Module uses a “quick counting” technique to substantially reduce runtime and memory. Without quick counting. The Rainflow and damage U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 85 . proportional loading also needs only one set of FE results. meaning that the Rainflow Matrix is 32 x 32 in dimension. if the alternating stress is lower than the lowest alternating stress on the fatigue curve. Cycle counting is a means to reduce a complex load history into a number of events. The accuracy of quick counting is usually very good if a proper number of bins are used when counting. the user can set the infinite life value that will be used if the alternating stress is beyond the limit of the SN curve. alternating andmean stresses are sorted into bins before partial damage is calculated. A larger bin size has greater precision but will take longer to solve and use more memory. Setting a higher value will make small stress cycles less damaging if they occur many times. The bin size defines how many divisions the cycle counting history should be organized into for the history data loading type. This provides for an added level of safety because many materials do not exhibit an endurance limit. another available option when conducting a variable amplitude fatigue analysis is the ability to set the value used for infinite life. In constant amplitude loading. Thus. the load ratio varies over time. bin size specifies the number of divisions of the rainflow matrix. in non-constant amplitude loading. Think of this as coupling an FE analysis with strain-gauge results collected over a given time interval. Non-constantAmplitude. which can be compared to the available constant amplitude test data. the fatigue tool will use the life at the last point. the fatigue loading which causes the maximum damage cannot easily be seen. However. the critical fatigue location can be found by looking at a single set of FE results. Non-constant amplitude. However. cycles with very small alternating stresses may be present and may incorrectly predict too much damage if the number of the small stress cycles is high enough. Since loading is proportional. Bin size defaults to 32.

Is the loading a variant of a sine wave with a single load ratio or does the loading vary perhaps erratically. Loading is of constant amplitude because only one set of FE stress results along with a loading ratio is required to calculate the alternating and mean values. proportional loading is the classic. describes whether the changing load causes the principal stress axes to change. “back of the envelope” calculation describing whether the load has a constant maximum value or continually varies with time. proportionality. which is analyzed with calculations for a single stress state.e+006 cycles Types of Cyclic Loading Unlike static stress. with the ANSYS Fatigue Module currently supporting the first three: • Constant amplitude. fatigue damage occurs when stress at a point changes over time. There are essentially four classes of fatigue loading. non-proportional loading In the above descriptions. Proportional Loading Constant amplitude.

a load ratio of -1) and zero-based (apply a load then remove it. Likewise. The loading ratio is defined as the ratio of the second load to the first load (LR = L2/L1). Since loading is proportional. looking at a single set of FE results can identify critical fatigue locations. if the alternating stress is lower than the lowest alternating stress on the fatigue curve. Common types of constant amplitude loading are fully reversed (apply a load. In constant amplitude loading. the U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 92 . Loading is proportional since only one set of FE results are needed (principal stress axes do not change over time). FIGURE Model > Static Structural > Solution > goodman stress life rl Value of Infinite Life Another available option when conducting a variable amplitude fatigue analysis is the ability to set the value used for infinite life. since there are only two loadings. no cycle counting or cumulative damage calculations need to be done. then apply an equal and opposite load. a load ratio of 0).

The rainflow and damage matrices shown in Figure 13 illustrates the possible effects of infinite life. However. fatigue tool will use the life at the last point. in non-constant amplitude loading. the user can set the infinite life value that will be used if the alternating stress is beyond the limit of the SN curve.

The rainflow and damage matrix results can be helpful in determining the effects of small stress cycles in your loading history. To help control this. cycles with very small alternating stresses may be present and may incorrectly predict too much damage if the number of the small stress cycles is high enough. Setting a higher value will make small stress cycles less damaging if they occur many times. Both damage matrices came from the same loading (and thus same rainflow matrix).e+009 cycles U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 93 . but the first damage matrix was calculated with an infinite life if 1e6 cycles and the second was calculated with an infinite life of 1e9 cycles.

INTRODUCTION TO GLASS LINING Introduction of Glass lining (Glasteel) In recent years. U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 103 . Pfaudler began investigating new approaches in glass development that would lead to a glass composition that could be made available to all users of glass-lined equipment. because of the expansion of the chemical process and pharmaceutical industries world-wide and increased concerns for safety and quality control.

High resistance to thermally induced stresses. Now GMM Pfaudler customers. An exception to this are chemistries that involve the element silicon (Si). thereby greatly extending its usage range. e. Together with the chemical process industry and with the co-operation of Pfaudler divisions around the world. Si. can purchase a single glass system and be assured of getting the same high quality worldwide. especially when ionised.g.

Relatively small amounts of dissolved SiO can be highly effective in reducing the corrosion rate of the Glasteel 9100 system. offering an unmatched combination of corrosion resistance. SiO. It has also been shown that colloidal silica additions to recipes containing the highly corrosive fluorine ion (F-) can drastically reduce the corrosive rate. regardless of where their processing operations are located. Increased resistance to acid and alkali corrosion. Pfaudler's first "international glass". GMM Pfaudler sets a standard the world can depend on. thermal shock resistance. Pfaudler established the criteria for a new composition: A non-crystalline structure. The result is Glasteel 9100®. High resistance to impact. impact strength. With Glasteel 9100 ®.

The corrosion rate of concentrated alkaline solutions cannot be expressed by the pH value alone. a corrosion rate of 0. pH-unstable system. It is also highly recommended that the unjacketed top head be insulated or heat traced to reduce condensation formation.1 mm/year can be expected. hydrochloric or acetic acid. tap water. For aqueous solutions of alkaline materials with a pH value of 14. Alkalis As alkali concentration rises. corrosion rate increases. the influence of the nature and amount of other dissolved substances and agitation. Also. Other factors affecting alkaline corrosion are the specific reaction and the dissolving ability of the chemical.g. Its behaviour resembles highly diluted acid and corrodes only the surface layer of the glass ("ion exchange process"). Carbonates and phosphates usually increase the rate while alcohols and some ionic species. Water Pure Water Pure water in the liquid phase is not very aggressive. to counter the possible danger of the condensate shifting to an alkaline pH. is steeper. The result is that concentrated alkalis require a more definite setting of the temperature limits. e. e. the isocorrosion curves for diluted alkaline solutions have to be consulted for orientation purposes. corrosion rate depends greatly on the type and quantity of the dissolved substance.

Zn2+ Ca2+. A13+. the particular concentration must also be considered to establish appropriate operating temperatures. But because this water is an unbuffered. However. it is recommended that the vessel contents be slightly acidified with a volatile acid. If there is a shift toward higher pH values. even a slight alkalization can change the situation.

even very slight contamination (tap water in sodium hydroxide. Under actual operating conditions. 2. for example) can cause major changes in the rate of corrosion. Provides increased operating safety margin through its enhanced thermal protection. 5. Allows safe and easy handling of high temperature processes never before approved for Glasteel equipment. meaningful testing is strongly advised.

For solutions above the boiling point. the volume/ surface area ratio. such as product velocity and splash zone. sodium carbonate and ammonia take into account technically relevant parameters influencing the rate of corrosion. By comparing the results with control experiments. Isocorrosion curves for sodium hydroxide. Is ideal for the higher temperatures required by today's chemical process applications. Provides potential for reduced cycle time compared to conventional vessel glass. Provides extended thermal shock protection for faster heating and cooling. 6. it is proven that the testing equipment does not have an inhibiting effect. for example. procedures are carried out in polypropylene bottles. inhibition effects by calcium ions. potassium hydroxide. Due to these interactive complexities. Pfaudler Ultra-Glas 6500 ® 1 . alkaline concentration and temperature. Other factors.

Technical details of corrosion rates in common chemicals and thermal operation limits are available on request. CAUTION: "Safe" operating temperatures vary with conditions. operation below the maximum and above the minimum is recommended. B. temperature ranges are given only as a guide. Because so many variables are involved. Contact Pfaudler for details. The features of GMM Pfaudler Ultra-Glas 6500 ® are the result of changes in glass composition and material preparation. Temperature Limits Although Ultra-Glas 6500 ® has a high degree of helpful compressive stress in the glass layer there are definite limits to the level of thermal stress which the glass can withstand without incurring damage: Only two thermal conditions must be considered when determining the temperature limits: A. Introduction of media into a vessel. Type 4300 glass coatings are advisable wherever alkaline conditions prevail during the U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 107 . Type 4300 Glass Coatings Type 4300 ® glass coatings represent a new aspect of this tradition and are designed to bridge a perceived gap in the application range. as well as changes in equipment design and materials of construction. but its primary application is based on improved alkali resistance. These changes permit trouble-free application of the required high-stress coating and provide the highly corrosive-resistant glass-lined surface for which Pfaudler has been respected for years.

Type 4300 ® has three times better alkali resistance. dissolved substances or gases which may have positive or negative effects on resistance.

This means that higher process temperatures can be used. or that. Corrosion Resistance For pure acids and bases most commonly used in the chemical industry . In practical operation these materials are always encountered with liquid additives. The Need For PPG U V PATEL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Page 108 . it is not recommended for aggressive acid conditions. Although it is adequate for mild service. under otherwise equal conditions. Danger of discoloration of alkaline products due to incorporation of metals. cycle. We therefore recommend performing corrosion tests or contacting a Pfaudler consultant to assure material suitability for individual processes. In addition. these glass coatings will have three times the life expectations. inhibition effects. Type 4300 ® glass coatings are advisable where any of the following conditions exist: Protection of alkaline products against metal contamination.

When the requirements of the Bulk Drug industry were studied recently. Pfaudler's response was a novel glass tailored to the needs of manufacturing pharmaceutical products. In light of the survey. vitamins and fine chemicals.especially in terms of glasslined reactors and components. The process equipment of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries has so far been very similar . the need for a different glass was evident. Two of the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry are increased purity in order to comply with the FDA and GMP requirements and alternating alkali/acid operation. in context of the stringent requirements of GMP and FDA.
