24 in Valve Protector Due to Drop Object Condition

The objective of this analysis is to determine the structure capacity of Valve protector due to drop object. This calculation
cover the most conservative condition for dropped object and shortest critical area.

For Valve protector energy capacity, it is assumed that impact loads will be absorbed half tubular pipe flange protector.
The cross section is shown in figure below.

The analysis is performed as per minimum requirement provided as per DNV-RP-F107

Di = diameter of impact area
Ui = impact energy
Zy = plastic section modulus
gsteel = steel density
Fy = yield stress of steel
E = Young's modulus
v = Velocity
m = Mass (taken from Trawl Gear Data)
tw = Thickness
R = Outside Diameter
