The ASME Code design criteria consist of basic rules specifying the design method, design loads, allow-

able stress, acceptable materials, fabrication, testing, certification, and inspection requirements. The de-

sign method known as "design by rule" defined in ASME Section VIII - Division 1 uses design pressure,

allowable stress and a design formula compatible with the geometry to calculate the minimum required

thickness of pressurized tanks, vessels and pipes.

sists of pipe, flanges, bolting, gaskets, valves, relief devices, fittings and the pressure containing parts of

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

other piping components. It also includes hangers and supports, and other equipment items necessary to

prevent overstressing the pressure containing parts. It does not include support structures such as

frames of buildings, buildings stanchions or foundations.

Required piping for industrial plants and marine applications. This code prescribes requirements for the

design, materials, fabrication, erection, test, and inspection of power and auxiliary service piping systems

for electric generation stations, industrial institutional plants, central and district heating plants. The code

covers boiler external piping for power boilers and high temperature, high pressure water boilers in which

steam or vapor is generated at a pressure of more than 15 PSIG; and high temperature water is generat-

ed at pressures exceeding 160 PSIG and/or temperatures exceeding 250 degrees F.

Withdrawn as a National Standard and replaced by ANSI/NFPA Z223.1, but B31.2 is still available from

ASME and is a good reference for the design of gas piping systems (from the meter to the appliance).

Code rules for design of chemical, petroleum plants, refineries, hydrocarbons, water and steam. This

Code contains rules for piping typically found in petroleum refineries; chemical, pharmaceutical, textile,

paper, semiconductor, and cryogenic plants; and related processing plants and terminals.

It prescribes requirements for materials and components, design, fabrication, assembly, erection, exami-

nation, inspection, and testing of piping. Also included is piping which interconnects pieces or stages

within a packaged equipment assembly.

B31.4 - Pipeline Transportation Systems for Liquid Hydrocarbons and Other Liquids:

This Code prescribes requirements for the design, materials, construction, assembly, inspection, and

testing of piping transporting liquids such as crude oil, condensate, natural gasoline, natural gas liquids,

liquefied petroleum gas, carbon dioxide, liquid alcohol, liquid anhydrous ammonia and liquid petroleum

products between producers' lease facilities, tank farms, natural gas processing plants, refineries, st a-

tions, ammonia plants, terminals (marine, rail and truck) and other delivery and receiving points. The re-

quirements for offshore pipelines are found in Chapter IX, and included within this scope are:

Primary and associated auxiliary liquid petroleum and liquid anhydrous ammonia piping at pipe-

line terminals (marine, rail and truck), tank farms, pump stations, pressure reducing stations and

metering stations, including scraper traps, strainers, and proper loops;

Storage and working tanks including pipe-type storage fabricated from pipe and fittings, and pip-

ing interconnecting these facilities;

Liquid petroleum and liquid anhydrous ammonia piping located on property which has been set

aside for such piping within petroleum refinery, natural gasoline, gas processing, ammonia, and

bulk plants;

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

Those aspects of operation and maintenance of liquid pipeline systems relating to the safety and

protection of the general public, operating company personnel, environment, property and the pip-

ing systems.

This Code prescribes requirements for the materials, design, fabrication, assembly, erection, test, and

inspection of refrigerant, heat transfer components, and secondary coolant piping for temperatures as

low as -320 F (-196 C), whether erected on the premises or factory assembled, except as specifically

excluded in the following paragraphs.

Users are advised that other piping Code Sections may provide requirements for refrigeration piping in

their respective jurisdictions. This Code shall not apply to:

other nationally recognized testing laboratory:

Water piping and piping designed for external or internal gage pressure not exceeding 15 psi

(105 kPa) regardless of size; or

Pressure vessels, compressors, or pumps, but does include all connecting refrigerant and sec-

ondary coolant piping starting at the first joint adjacent to such apparatus.

This Code covers the design, fabrication, installation, inspection, and testing of pipeline facilities used for

the transportation of gas. This Code also covers safety aspects of the operation and maintenance of

those facilities. It includes gas transmission, appurtenances for transporting gas; gas storage equipment

fabricated from pipe and fittings; and gas storage lines.

This Standard applies to on-shore pipeline systems constructed with ferrous materials and that transport

gas. Pipeline system means all parts of physical facilities through which gas is transported, including

pipe, valves, appurtenances attached to pipe, compressor units, metering stations, regulator stations,

delivery stations, holders and fabricated assemblies.

The principles and processes are applicable to all pipeline systems. This Standard is specifically de-

signed to provide the operator (as defined in section 13) with the information necessary to develop and

implement an effective integrity management program utilizing proven industry practices and processes.

The processes and approaches within this Standard are applicable to the entire pipeline system.

This Section has rules for the piping in industrial, institutional, commercial and public buildings, and multi-

unit residences, which does not require range of sizes, pressures, and temperatures covered in B31.1.

This Code prescribes requirements for the design, materials, fabrication, installation, inspection, exami-

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

nation and testing of piping systems for building services. It includes piping systems in the building or

within the property limits.

Rule for design, construction, inspection and security requirements of slurry piping systems. This code

covers piping systems that transport aqueous slurries of no hazardous materials, such as coal, mineral

ores and other solids between a slurry processing plant and the receiving plant. It also covers piping

transporting liquids, tank farms, natural gas processing plants, refineries, pump stations, ammonia plants,

terminals (marine, rail, and truck), and other delivery and receiving points.

The scope of this Manual includes all pipelines within the scope of the pipeline codes that are part of

ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping, ASME B31.4, Liquid Transportation Systems for Hydrocarbons,

Liquid Petroleum Gas, Anhydrous Ammonia, and Alcohols; ASME B31.8, Gas Transmission and Distri-

bution Piping Systems; and ASME B31.11, Slurry Transportation Piping Systems. Parts 2, 3, and 4 are

based on material in ASME Guide for Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems, 1983 Edition.

The symbols "A", "S", "U", "PP" and "H" Stamps covers the fabrication and alteration of high pressure

boilers, unfired pressure vessels, power piping and heating boilers. Once an ASME Stamped Pressure

Vessel is manufactured, it is checked, tested and approved by the ASME Authorized Inspector, who

review all the procedures and all documentation and sign the Data Report Form before the procedure to

stamp the name plate with the U or UM symbols, which means that the Pressure Vessel fully com-

plies with the ASME Code rules for construction of Pressure Vessels.

The National Board of Boiler & Pressure Vessel Inspectors uses the NB Symbol as well the R

Symbol to repair or to alter any previous Stamped Pressure Vessel. All material used in manufacture

must be documented. All welders must be certified. Manufacturers have an Authorized Inspector, who

is the judge of code acceptability. The quality of weld is then checked for lack of weld penetration, slag

inclusion, overlap and excessive reinforcement. At the final inspection the units are hydrostatically test-

ed at 1.5 times working pressure and observed for leaks.

The formulae in ASME Section I and Section VIII are used to determine the minimum required thick-

ness and design pressure of piping, tubes, drums and headers using the Maximum Allowable Work-

ing Pressure (MAWP). However, Paragraph UG-31 states, that these formulae may be also used for

calculating wall thickness of tubes and pipes under internal pressure.

2.1 Design:

The ASME Boiler Code Section I, as well as Section VIII, requires longitudinal and circumferential butt

joints to be examined by full radiograph.

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

When the vessel design is required fully radiographed longitudinal butt-welded joint, the cylindrical shell

will have a joint efficiency factor (E = 1.0). This factor corresponds to a safety factor (or material quali-

ty factor) of 3.5 in the parent metal.

When the vessel design is required non-radiographed longitudinal butt-welded joints the vessel will

have a joint efficiency factor (E = 0.7, which corresponds to a safety factor of 0.5 in., resulting in an

increase of 43% in the thickness of the plates.

The maximum allowable stress values to be used in the calculation of the vessels wall thickness are

given in the ASME Code for many different materials. These stress values are a function of temperature.

Division 1: Governs the design by Rules, is less stringent from the standpoint of certain design details

and inspection procedures, and thus incorporates a higher safety factor of 4. For example, if a 60,000

psi tensile strength material is used, the Maximum Allowable Stress Value is 15,000 psi.

Division 2: Governs the design by Analysis" and incorporates a lower safety factor of 3. Thus, the

maximum allowable stress value for a 60,000 psi tensile strength material will become 20,000 psi.

Many companies require that all their pressure vessels be constructed in accordance with Division 2

because of the more exacting standards. Others find that they can purchase less expensive vessels

by allowing manufacturers the choice of either Division 1 or Division 2.

Normally, manufacturers will choose Division 1 for low-pressure vessels and Division 2 for high-

pressure vessels. The maximum allowable stress values at normal temperature range for the steel

plates most commonly used in the fabrication of pressure vessels are given in Table above.

3.0 ASME SECTION I - POWER BOILERS: Types, Design, Fabrication, Inspection & Repair:

Provides requirements for construction of power, electric, and miniature boilers; high temperature water

boilers used in stationary service; and power boilers used in locomotive, portable, and traction service.

Rules allow the use of the V, A, M, PP, S and E symbol stamps.

These rules are applicable to boilers in which the steam is generated at pressures exceeding 15 psig,

and high temperature water boilers for operation at pressures exceeding 160 psig and/or temperatures

exceeding 250 F. This code covers Power Boiler Superheaters, Economizers, and other pressure

parts connected directly to the boiler. Valves are considered as part of the scope in Section 1.

Calculate the minimum required wall thickness of a water tube boiler 2.75 in O.D., strength welded (E,

or, e = 0) into place in a boiler. The tube has an average wall temperature of 650F. The Maximum Al-

lowable Working Pressure (MAWP) is 580 psi gauge. Material is carbon steel SA-192.

Note: Before starting calculations check the correct stress table in ASME Section II, Table 1A. Consider

SA-192 = 11,800 psi allowable stress Div. 1.

S = [11,800 psi] at [650F])

2 (11,800) + 580

t = 0.079 in.

Note: Where the manufacturing processes produce only standard plate thickness, should be used min-

imum 1/8 in (3.2 mm).

The following formulae are found in ASME Section I, paragraph PG-27.2.2. The information for piping,

drums, or headers may be given with either the inside I or outside D measurements.

P = Design Pressure (psi);

D = Tube Outside Diameter (in);

C = Corrosion Allowance (0 for no corrosion; 0.0625 in. commonly used; 0.125 in. maximum);

S = Maximum Allowable Stress According to ASME Section II, Table 1A.

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

Calculate the required minimum thickness of a seamless steam piping at a pressure of 900 psi gauge

and a temperature of 700F. The piping is 10.77 in O.D., (10 inches nominal) plain end; the material is

SA-335 P1, alloy steel. Allow a manufacturers tolerance allowance of 12.5%.

Note: Before starting calculations check the material stress table in ASME Section II, Table 1A:

SA-335 P1, S = 13,800 psi allowable stress Div.1. Use equation 2.1:

P = [900 psi]

D = [10.77 in]

C=0

S = [13,800] (SA-335 P1 alloy steel at 700F)

E = 1.0

y = 0.4 (Ferritic steel less than 900F)

2(13,800) (1.0) + 2(0.4) (900)

Calculate the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) for a seamless steel pipe of material SA-

209-T1. The outside pipe diameter is 12.75 in. (nominal diam. 12 in.) with a wall thickness of 0.46 in.

The operating temperature is 850F. The pipe is plain ended.

t = 0.46 in;

C = 0 (3 to 4 inches nominal and larger);

E = 1.0 (seamless pipe as per PG-9.1);

A welded water tube boiler drum of SA-515-60 material is fabricated to an inside radius of 18.70 in. on

the tube sheet and 19.68 in on the drum. The plate thickness of the tube sheet and drum are 2.34 in.

and 1.49 in., respectively. The longitudinal joint efficiency is 100%, and the ligament efficiencies are 56%

horizontal and 30% circumferential. The operating temperature is not to exceed 500F. Determine the

Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) based on:

DRUM &

TUBESHEET

Note: This is a common example of a water tube drum fabricated from two plates of different thickness.

Thicker material is required where the boiler tubes enter the drum than is required for a plain drum. This

example has two parts:

b) The tube sheet consider the drum to have penetrations for boiler tubes.

E = 1.0;

t = 1.49 in;

C = 0;

R = 19.68 in;

E = 0.56 (circumferential stress = 30% and longitudinal stress = 56%; therefore = 0.56 < 2 x 0.30);

t = 2.34 in;

C = 0 (3 to 4 inches nominal and larger);

R = 18.70 in;

y = 0.4 (Ferritic steel less than 900F).

18.70 + (1 0.4) (2.34 0)

18.70 + 1.404

Note: Consider the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) = 1,086 psi (lowest number).

The ASME Section VIII, rules for fired or unfired pressure vessels, is divided into three divisions appli-

cable to design, fabrication, inspection, testing, and certification. The formulae and allowable stresses

presented in this sketch are only for Division 1, the main code. It contains mandatory and non-

mandatory appendices detailing supplementary design criteria, nondestructive examination and inspec-

tion acceptance standards. The use of the U, UM and UV Code symbol stamps are also included.

The formulae in ASME Section VIII, Division 1, paragraph UG-27, used for calculating the wall thick-

ness and design pressure of pressure vessels, are:

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

(R = Internal Radius)

(R = Internal Radius)

A vertical boiler is constructed of SA-515-60 according to Section VIII-1. It has an internal diameter of

96 in. and an internal design pressure of 1,000 psi at 450 F. The corrosion allowance is 0.125 in., and

joint efficiency is E = 0.85. Calculate the required thickness of the shell. (Consider SA-515-60 = 15,000

psi allowable stress, ASME Section II, Table 1A, Div.1).

Since P < 0.385SE = P < 6,545 psi. Thus, as 1,000 psi < 6,545 psi, use equation 1.3:

t= PR + C =

SE 0.6P

Considering the internal radius = (48 in.) and corrosion allowance = 0.125 in.

t= 1,000 x 48 . + 0.125 =

2(15,000)(0.85) 0.6(1,000)

t = 2.052 in.

For internal pressures higher than 3,000 psi, special considerations as specified in paragraph U-1 (d).

As the ratio of t/R increases beyond 0.5, an accurate equation is required to determine the thickness.

The formulae in ASME Appendix 1, Supplementary Design Formulas used for calculating thick wall

and design pressure, are:

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

And:

And:

Where:

Z = Dimensionless Factor.

Calculate the required shell thickness of an accumulator with a design pressure of P = 10,000 psi, R =

18 in., S = 20,000 psi, and E = 1.0. Assume a corrosion allowance of 0.125 in.

Since P > 0.385SE = P > 7,700 psi. Thus, as 10,000 psi > 7,700 psi, use equation 1.7:

t = R (Z - 1) =

(20,000).(1.0) 10,000 10,000

t = (18) (3 1) + 0.125 = 8.08 in.

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

Calculate the required shell thickness of an accumulator with a design pressure of P = 7,650 psi, R = 18

in., S = 20,000 psi, and E = 1.0. Assume corrosion allowance = 0.

Since P< 0.385SE = P < 7,700 psi. Thus, as 7,650 psi < 7,700 psi, use equation 1.3:

t= PR + C =

SE 0.6P

t= 7,650 x 18 + 0 =

(20,000)(1.0) 0.6(7,650)

t = 8.9 in.

Calculate the shell thickness, comparing the equation 1.3 with another answer using equation 1.7.

t = R (Z - 1) =

(20,000)(1.0) 7,650 12,350

t = (18 + 0) (2.24 - 1) = 8.9 in.

This shows that the simple use of equation (1.3) is accurate over a wide range of R/t ratios.

4.3 ASME I and ASME-ANSI B31 Pressure Piping - Minimum Wall Thickness:

According to ASME Section I and ANSI B31, the minimum thickness of piping under pressure is:

P = Design pressure (psig);

D = Outside diameter of pipe (in);

S = Allowable stress in pipe material (psi);

E = Longitudinal joint factor - E = 1.0 for seamless pipe, E = 0.85 for ERW pipe;

C = Corrosion allowance, typically 0.05 in.

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

y = Wall thickness coefficient in ASME according to Table 304.1.1 for ferritic steels, where:

y = 0.5 for 900 < T <= 950 F;

y = 0.7 for 950 < T <= 1000 F.

The standard design method uses an increased wall thickness plate at the equator line of the vessel to

support the additional stresses caused by the attachment of the legs. The formula for calculation the

wall thickness of a segmented plate of to be welded in a vessel or spherical shell is:

t= PL +C

2SE 0.2P

L = Di/2

Where:

P = Design Pressure (psi);

Di = Inside Diameter of Sphere (in);

L = Sphere Radius (in);

E = Tube Welding Factor (1.0 for seamless pipe; 0.85 = for welded pipe);

C = Corrosion Allowance (0 for no corrosion; 0.0625 in. commonly used; 0.125 in. maximum);

S = Maximum Allowable Stress According to ASME Section II, Table 1A.

Dished heads can be manufactured using a combination of processes, spinning & flanging, where the

spherical radius is made via the spinning process and the knuckle is created under the flanging method.

Flanged and dished heads can be formed in a size range from 4 in to 300 in diameter and in thickness

range of 14 Gauge to 1-1/2 thick. Pressure vessel heads and dished ends are essentially the same

the end caps of a pressure vessel tank or an industrial boiler, supplied with a flanged edge to make it

easier for the fabricator to weld the head to the main body of the tank.

Paragraph PG-29.1 states that the thickness of a blank, unstayed dished head with the pressure on the

concave side, when it is a segment of a sphere, shall be calculated by the following formula:

Where:

2012 Jurandir Primo 18 de 59

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

P = maximum allowable working pressure (psi);

L = Concave side radius (in);

S = Maximum Allowable Working Stress (psi).

Paragraph PG-29.2 states: The radius to which the head is dished shall be not greater than the out-

side diameter of the flanged portion of the head. Where two radii are used, the longer shall be taken

as the value of L in the formula.

Calculate the thickness of a seamless, blank unstayed dished head having pressure on the concave

side. The head has an inside diameter of 42.7 in. with a dish radius of 36.0 in. The Maximum Allowa-

ble Working Pressure (MAWP) is 360 psi and the material is SA-285 A. The temperature does not ex-

ceed 480F. State if this thickness meets Code. (Solution: Use equation 1.11).

P = 360 psi;

L = 36.0 in;

S = 11,300 psi SA-285 A at 480F.

t = 5 (360 x 36) =

4.8 (11,300)

t = 1.19 in.

PG-29.6 states: No head, except a full-hemispherical head, shall be of a lesser thickness than that

required for a seamless pipe of the same diameter. Then, the minimum thickness of piping is:

t= 360 x 42.7 =

2(11,300)(1.0) + 2 (0.4)(360)

t = 0.67 in. The calculated head thickness meets the code requirements, since 1.19 > 0.67.

Calculate the thickness of a seamless, unstayed dished head with pressure on the concave side, having

a flanged-in manhole 6.0 in x 16 in. Diameter head is 47.5 in with a dish radius of 45 in. The MAWP is

225 psi, the material is SA-285-C, and temperature does not exceed 428F.

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

First thing to check: is the radius of the dish at least 80% of the diameter of the shell?

Dish Radius = 45 = 0.947 > 0.8 The radius of the dish meets the criteria, use equation 1.11:

Shell Diameter 47.5

P = 225 psi;

L = 45 in;

S = 13,800 psi (450F - use the next higher temperature).

t = 5 (225 x 45) =

4.8 (13,800)

t = 0.764 in.

This thickness is for a blank head. According to ASME - PG-29.3 requires this thickness to be in-

creased by 15% or 0.125 in., whichever is greater. As 0.764 0.15 = 0.114 in., that is less than 0.125

in., then, the thickness must be increased by 0.125 in.

Then, the required head thickness is, t = 0.764 + 0.125 = ~0.90 in.

The thickness of a blank, unstayed, full-hemispherical head with the pressure on the concave side shall

be calculated by the following formula:

P = Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (psi)

L = Radius to which the head was formed (in)

S = Maximum Allowable Working Stress (psi)

Note: The above formula shall not be used when the required thickness of the head given by the formu-

la exceeds 35.6% of the inside radius. Instead, use the following formula:

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

Calculate the minimum required thickness for a blank, unstayed, full-hemispherical head. The radius to

which the head is dished is 7.5 in. The MAWP is 900 psi and the head material is SA 285-C. The aver-

age temperature of the header is 570F.

P = 900 psi;

L = 7.5 in.;

S = 13,800 psi - (SA 285-C at 600F).

2 (13,800) 0.2 (900)

Check if this thickness exceeds 35.6% of the inside radius = 7.5 x 0.356 = 2.67 in. It does not exceed

35.6%, therefore the calculated thickness of the head meets the code requirements.

Flanged and dished heads can be formed from carbon steel, stainless steel, and other ferrous and non-

ferrous metals and alloys. Flanged and dished heads can be formed in a size range from 4 inches to 300

inches diameter and in thickness range of 1/8 in. to 1 inches thick. The ASME Section VIII Division

1 determines the rules for dished heads. The most common configurations are spherical, hemispheri-

cal, elliptical (or ellipsoidal) and torispherical shapes.

How the shapes are, make some confusion for beginners and even professionals users of ASME

Section VIII. To cast a little light on these subjects see the resume below:

And,

A pressure vessel is built of SA-516-70 material and has an inside diameter of 96 in. The internal design

pressure is 100 psi at 450F. Corrosion allowance is 0.125 in. and joint efficiency is E = 0.85. Calculate

the required spherical head thickness of the pressure vessel if S is 20,000 psi?

Since P > 0.665SE = P > 11,305 psi. Thus, as 11,305 > 100 psi, use equation 2.1.

The inside radius in a corroded condition is equal to, R = 48 + 0.125 = 48.125 in.

t= PR =

2SE 0.2P

t= 100 x 48.125 =

2(20,000) (0.85) 0.2(100)

t = 0.14 in.

A spherical pressure vessel with an internal diameter of 120 in has a head thickness of 1 in. Deter-

mine the design pressure if the allowable stress is 16,300 psi. Assume joint efficiency E = 0.85. No cor-

rosion allowance is stated to the design pressure.

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

Using t = 1.0 in., then t < 0.356R = 1.0 in. < 21.3 in., use equation 2.2.

P= 2SEt =

R + 0.2t

P = 2(16,300)(0.85)(1) =

60 + 0.2(1)

P = 460 psi

The calculated pressure 460 psi is < 0.665SE (9213 psi); therefore, equation 2.2 is acceptable.

And,

Calculate the required hemispherical head thickness of an accumulator with a design pressure of P =

10,000 psi, R = 18.0 in, S = 15,000 psi, and E = 1.0. Corrosion allowance is 0.125 in.

Since P > 0.665SE = P > 9975 psi. Thus, as 9975 psi < 10,000 psi, use equation 2.3.

Y = 2 [(15,000)(1.0) + 10,000] =

2 [(15,000)(1.0)] 10,000

Y = 50,000 = 2.5

The commonly used semi-ellipsoidal head has a ratio of base radius to depth of 2:1 (shown below).

The actual shape can be approximated by a spherical radius of 0.9D and a knuckle radius of 0.17D.

Inside Knuckle Radius (ri): (18.0 x 0.17Di) in;

Straight Skirt Length (h): 1.500 in.;

P = 219 psi.

Note: Ellipsoidal heads and all torispherical heads having materials with minimum tensile strength

> 80,000 psi shall be designed using a value of S = 20,000 psi at room temperature (see UG-23).

Shallow heads, commonly referred to as flanged and dished heads (F&D heads), are according to

paragraph UG-32 (e), with a spherical radius L of 1.0D and a knuckle radius r of 0.06D.

The dish radius of a Flanged and Dished Head is 1.0 D and the knuckle radius is 0.06% D. The required

thickness of a Torispherical F&D Head with r/L = 0.06 and L = Di, is:

A drum is to operate at 500F and 350 psi and to hold 5000 gallons of water. The inside radius of the

Dished Torispherical Heads is 78 in. The material is SA 285 Grade A.

Assume S = 11,200 psi and E = 0.85.

R + 0.6t 60 in. + 0.6(0.875)

Checking condition = P < 0.385SE. Thus, 163.5 psi < 4350 psi.

Then, as calculated, the MAWP (4350 psi) is much greater than the design pressure (163.5 psi).

Example 7: The horizontal pressure vessel below is 60 inch inside diameter, to be fabricated from SA-

The ves-sel operates full of liquid. The density of the liquid is 62.4 lb/ft, and the distance from the center

line to the uppermost part of the vessel is 5 ft. Calculate the required thickness.

Solution: As stated in UG-22, the static head of the liquid must be included in P. The design pressure is

less than 0.385SE (P < 0.385SE) and t < R/2. The allowable stress for SA-516 Gr. 70, shown in Table 1A

considering ASME VIII, Division 1 is 17,500 psi. Weld efficiency, spot radiographed is 0.85 for Type 1. No

corrosion allowance is considered.

Since P is the total pressure acting on the section and must equal 490 psi plus the static head created by

8 feet (5 + 3 - the total height above the section) of liquid, then:

144 in/ft

P = 493.5 psi

t= PR =

SE-06P

17,500 psi (0.85) 0.6 (493.5 psi)

t = 1.01 in.

For this calculation is also necessary to check the stress in longitudinal direction, which is the sum of the

stress due internal pressure and the bending stress. The resulting formula to be used is:

IE 2Et

Calculation of moments at A give a bending moment of 183,900 ft-lb. The moment of inertia, I, for a thin

wall cylinder is calculated by the formula .r.t, where r is the mean radius of the shell. For Type 1 with

no radiography, welding efficiency, E, is 0.7. Thus, the stress in lingitudinal direction becomes:

SL = (183,900 ft-lb) (12 in./ft) (37.2 in.) + 493.5 psi (36 in. 0.4 (1.01 in.) =

() (36.6) (1.01 in.) (0.7) (2) (0.7) (1.01)

Considerations: Assume the nominal thickness of the plate, 1 1/4 inch. Check post weld heat treatment

(PWHT) and preheat requirements according to ASME code. Check radiography requirement.

Paragraph UCS-56, Table 56 (2): PWHT or preheat is required if thickness is greater than 1 1/4

inches nominal thickness, thus PWHT or preheat are not necessary.

Paragraph UCS-57, Table 57 requires that P-Number 1 Group 2 materials be fully radiographed if

the butt weld thickness is greater than 1 1/4 inch. Thus, only spot radiography is sufficient.

Example 8: Calculate a seamless torispherical head, as shown below, with an inside crown radius equal

to the outside diameter of the skirt and with 6 % knuckle radius, the vessel is fabricated to have a cylin-

der with the same diameter. The internal design pressure is 150 psi at 800F, full radiography, material

SA-516 Gr. 70, corrosion allowance (CA) is 0.125. Consider, example 19, shell plate thickness = 0.875,

external diameter 120 inches, S = 17,500 psi (Table 1A); E = 1.0 (UW-32).

www.PDHcenter.com PDHonline Course M398 www.PDHonline.org

t = 0.885 PL =

SE 0.1P

The inside crown radius (L) is equal inside diameter plus 2 times thickness of the shell, then:

(17,500 psi) (1.0) 0.1 (150 psi)

t (required) = 1 1/2 in. Thus, all welds must be Type 1, fully radiographed. PWHT and preheat required.

Example 9: Rework the example 8 above, considering a non-standard torispherical head, assuming that

the inside crown radius is 80% of the skirt outside diameter and the inside knuckle radius is 10% of the

skirt outside diameter.

L = 97.2 in.

r = 0.10 (121.57)

t = 0.60 in.

4. Toriconical Heads: The required thickness of the conical portion (knuckle radius > 6% OD) shall be

determined by formula using internal diameter of shell, Di and 30.

L = Di/(2 cos );

L = Outside spherical or crown radius;

Di = Internal diameter of conical portion = D -2 r (1- cos );

r = Inside knuckle radius.

As per ASME Section VIII-1, UG-99, the pressure vessels designed for internal pressure shall be sub-

jected to a hydrostatic test pressure which at every point in the vessel is at least equal to 1.3 times

the MAWP multiplied by the lowest ratio for the materials of which the vessel is constructed of the stress

value S for the test temperature on the vessel to the stress value S for the design temperature.

Where:

MAWP = Maximum Allowable Working Pressure.

And as per UG-100, a pneumatic test (with at least equal to 1.1 times the MAWP multiplied by the lowest

ratio for the materials of which the vessel is constructed of the stress value S for the test temperature on

the vessel to the stress value S for the design temperature) may be used in lieu of the standard hydro-

static test prescribed in UG-99 for vessels under certain conditions:

Designed and/or supported that they cannot safely be filled with water;

Not readily dried, to be used in services where traces of the testing liquid cannot be tolerated and the

parts of which have, where possible, been previously tested by hydrostatic pressure to the pressure re-

quired in UG-99.

Where:

a) Division 1: This division covers the mandatory requirements, specific prohibitions and non-mandatory

guidance for materials, design, fabrication, inspection and testing, markings and reports, overpressure

protection and certification of pressure vessels having an internal or external pressure which exceeds 15

psi (100 kPa). The ASME Division 1 is the most common design standard for pressure vessels.

The Section VIII, Division 1 presents several design procedures and methods in both the Mandatory and

Nonmandatory Appendices; however, design procedures in the appendices differ from those in the body

of the Code. As an example, Appendix 2 provides methods for designing multibolted flanges. Paragraph

2-1 (c) recommends that bolted flange connections, be used within the material, size, and pressure tem-

perature ratings listed in UG-44. UCI-3 and UCD-3 also have restrictions on the pressure-temperature

ratings of standard flanges.

The pressure vessel can be either fired or unfired. The pressure may be from external sources, or by

the application of heating from an indirect or direct source, or any combination thereof. The Division is

b) Division 2 - Alternative Rules: Covers the mandatory requirements, specific prohibitions and non-

mandatory guidance for materials, design, fabrication, inspection and testing, markings and reports,

overpressure protection and certification of pressure vessels having an internal or external pressure,

which exceeds 15 psi (103 kPa). The pressure vessel can be either fired or unfired. The pressure may

be from external sources, or by the application of heating from an indirect or direct source as a result of a

process, or any combination of the two. The rules contained in this section can be used as an alternative

to the minimum requirements specified in Division 1.

Generally the Division 2 rules are more onerous than in Division 1 with respect to materials, design

and nondestructive examinations due higher design stress intensity values. Division 2 also allows the

use of finite element analysis to determine expected stress in pressure equipment, in addition to the

traditional approach of design by formula (Part 5: "Design by Analysis requirements").

c) Division 3 - Alternative Rules for Construction of High Pressure Vessels: Covers the mandatory

requirements, specific prohibitions and non-mandatory guidance for materials, design, fabrication, in-

spection and testing, markings and reports, overpressure protection and certification of pressure vessels

having an internal or external pressure which exceeds 10,000 psi (70,000 kPa). The pressure vessel

can be either fired or unfired. The pressure may be from external sources, by the application of heating

from an indirect or direct source, process reaction or any combination thereof.
