APPENDIX EE HALF-PIPE JACKETS

EE-1 GENERAL rp inside radius of jacket dened in Fig. EE-4, in. S1p allowable tensile stress of jacket material at design temperature, psi P1p design pressure in jacket, psi. (P1 shall not exceed P.) The llet weld attaching the half-pipe jacket to the vessel shall have a throat thickness not less than the smaller of the jacket or shell thickness. Through thickness jacket welds with a llet shall be considered when the jacket is in cyclic service.

The calculation procedure in this Appendix shall be used only if both of the following conditions apply. (a) There is positive pressure inside the shell or head. (b) There is positive pressure inside the half-pipe jacket.

When axial forces are negligible, S shall be taken as PR /2t. When the combination of axial forces and pressure stress (PR/2t) is such that S would be a negative number, then S shall be taken as zero.

For other jacket geometries such as shown in Fig. EE-5, the permissible pressure P may be obtained from the rules of UG-47 for stayed construction or 95 for jacketed vessels. Example What is the required thickness of a cylindrical shell subjected to an inside pressure of 190 psi and a halfpipe jacket pressure of 300 psi? The jacket is in noncyclic service.
