INTRODUCTION
WHAT IS STRESS?
 Stress=Applied force/Cross Sectional Area
 Strain=Change in dimensions/Original
dimensions.
 Stress of a material is the internal resistance per
unit area to the deformation caused by applied
load.
STRESS-STRAIN CURVE
IMPORTANCE OF PIPE STRESS ANALYSIS

 Uniform Piping Layout


 Support Locations
 Calculation of Nozzle Loadings,Support
Loadings,Stress,Displacement,Forces,Moments.
 Pipe Flexibility
OBJECTIVES

 What is STRESS ANALYSIS:


It provides the necessary technique for
Engineers to design piping systems without
overstressing & overloading the piping
components & connected equipment.
 OBJECTIVES:
The Layout & Design of Piping shall be made to prevent
the followings:

 1.Piping Stress in excess of those permitted by the


Codes
 2.Leakage at Joints
 3.Excessive forces & moments on connected
Equipments.
 4. Excessive Stresses in the piping supporting elements
 5. Excessive with thermal Expansion & Contraction
FORMAL ANALYSIS IS NOT REQUIRED

 Duplicates or Replaces without significance change,a system


operating with a successful service records.
 Can readily be judged adequate by comparison with previously
Analyzed systems.
 Thumb Rule:
Dy/(L-U)²<=K1

D=Outside Diameter of the Pipe in mm


y =Resultant of total displacement Strains
in mm
L=Developed length of Piping between Anchors in m
U=Anchor distance,straight line between Anchors in m
K1=208000 Sa/Ea in (mm/m)²
Sa=Allowable Displacement Stress in MPa
Ea=Reference Modulus of Elasticity in MPa
PURPOSE

 Safety of Piping & Piping Components


 Safety of Connected Equipment & Supporting
Structure
 Piping Deflections are within the Allowable
limits

STRESS CATEGORIES

PRIMARY SECONDARY PEAK

1.Sustained External 1. Local yielding 1.The additional stresses


forces and minor distortion due to stress
& moments can satisfy the intensification in
conditions which highly localized area.
2.Prevent plastic caused 2.Stress due to notch effect
deformation & bursting the stress to occur. (Stress concentration)
2.Thermal stress
ALLOWABLE STRESS
Smax=1.6(Sc+ Sh)
Sa= F(1.25 Sc + 0.25 Sh)
Sa=Allowable Stress
Sc=Cold Allowable Stress
Sh=Hot Allowable Stress
F=Stress Range Reduction factor for Cyclic
Conditions
CYCLES F

PIPE FLEXIBILITY

 The Purpose of Piping Flexibility Analysis


is to produce a Piping Layout that cause
neither excessive stresses nor excessive end
reactions.
PIPE FLEXIBILITY
Parameters to be Considered for Flexibility Analysis:-
• The Appropriate Code that applies to the system.
• The Design Pressure and Temperature.
• The Type of material.
• The Pipe Size and Wall Thickness of each Pipe Component.
• The Piping Geometry including movements of Anchors and
Restraints.
• The Allowable Stresses for the design conditions set by
appropriate Code.
• Limitations of forces and moments on Equipment Nozzles set
by API, NEMA or the equipment manufacturers.
