All piping with criteria H generally will require a formal computer CAESAR analysis.3 or B31.5barg or where relief valve outlet piping is not fixed/axially. which includes the following: All piping layouts shall be checked for load effects. flexibility and stress as laid down in ASME B31. graphs. >180°C Stainless Steel pipes DN80 and larger with temp. In cases where differential settlement of equipment and/or supports is expected with absolute differential settlement > 5mm and pipe size > DN300 Pipes subject to slug flow: Lines DN150 through DN300 : Vslug > 10 m/s Lines >= DN350 : Vslug > 8 m/s Water hammer: pipe with length larger than 500 m is evaluated by process for potential surge (water hammer) by a full surge analysis and transient analysis. Records of all analysis shall be made available.00 Page 2 of 4 . where inlet pressure > 3. >350°C Carbon Steel / Low Chrome pipes DN200 and larger with temp. >120°C Criteria for M (where not covered by Criteria H) : pipes DN 500 and larger . > 100°C Pipes DN80 and larger connected to pulsating equipment Pipes to and from boilers and heaters with temperature ranges below. Process regeneration pipes with larger than 7000 cycles / lifetime Pipes DN200 and larger connected to large diameter storage tanks. > 100°C Pipes DN80 and larger connected to air-cooled heat exchangers with -45°C > temp. Additionally. Formal flexibility analysis may be performed by means of visual inspection. based on the layout review and judgment of the Lead Stress Engineer.
