Comment: Only ASME can make interpretations on the ASME VIII-1 Code Weld Efficiencies for ASME VIII-1 vessels - Section UW11(a)(5)(b)

Part 1 - introduction I have long struggled with the weld efficiencies presented in section UW of the ASME VIII-1 code. I have had more trouble with it than many other sections of the book combined. The ideas in this section are simple, but the ASME code written around it is anything but. Where ASME has not made the code readable, we must live with confused and diverging interpretations. The problem area is sections UW-11 and UW-12 and any section of the code that references UW-11(a)(5)(b) - and there are many. What weld efficiencies to use when seams with different efficiencies intersect? I do not believe that circ weld efficiencies can affect longitudinal efficiencies however; these rules as presented in UW-12 and UW-11(a)(5)(b) exist and must be dealt with. I do believe that I will have to read the infinitely confusing sentence UW-11(a)(5)(b) many more times in my career. I and others have tried to reason their way through this section of the code. An example can be found at http://www.authorizedinspector.com/Joint%20Efficiencies.htm I think what I present here agrees with their interpretation, but I do not like this method. Even if you agree with what is presented, then you still have to persuade others - best of luck. Only ASME can provide interpretations as to what this code means, and someone can ask them, but - how about doing something simple instead? Samples of what the code committee wants can be found in appendix L. In specific samples L-1.5.1 through L-1.6.3 show the correct weld efficiency to use with differing radiography, and they also show the effect of circ efficiency on long seams. The meaning of UW-11(a)(5)(b) can be inferred. This article comments on the 6 sample vessels found in Appendix L. A simple spreadsheet is introduced that calculates the same weld efficiencies. The spreadsheet can be downloaded from http://www.pveng.com/documents/content_156.xls Each Appendix L sample is calculated at the end of this article. Pressure Vessel Engineering Ltd. assumes no responsibility for this sheets use, and reminds you that only ASME can provide code interpretations. We would however be very happy if everyone could use the same interpretation to this difficult code section.

Part 2 - samples from Appendix L-1.5 with Comments

Example L-1.5.1

Comments: 1) All efficiencies are from table UW-12 2) Nozzle or sump has no effect on the shell efficiencies (Type 8 in table UW-12 corner joints have an efficiency of 1.0. (This is true for all examples in Appendix L-1.5) 3) The long and circ efficiency on shells and pipes is tracked separately and both are calculated 4) The shell circ weld efficiency is different at each end. 1.0 for the Type 1 and 0.9 for the type 2 joint. The lower efficiency governs.

UW-11(a)(5)(b) is met for the semi elliptical head of this vessel. you will have to fully radiograph the long seam. The radiography in question is not that of the adjoining rolled shell which has no effect on the elliptical head.Page 7 of 12 . Note: If your authorized inspector or review engineer does not agree that this example L-1.6 Comments: 1) This case shows that UW-11(a)(5)(b) can be satisfied for a vessel with spot radiography on the long seam. The semi-elliptical head can have an efficiency of 1. This is the leading cause of disagreement on allowable weld efficiencies.doc . This sample shows that this effect does not exist. 2) 3) All efficiencies are from table UW-12 See L-1.5. then they are implying that the adjacent shell affects the efficiency of the head. but not for the shell. The heads have imaginary long seam welds with the equivalent of 100% radiography as required by UW-11(a).
