– L2 W P1 H (SUS) another basic load case L2 = W+P1+H  (SUS)   • Expansion Case is the difference between the  operating and sustained cases. – L3 = L1‐L2  (EXP)  this is called a combination load case . – L1 = W+P1+T1+H (OPE) this is called a basic load case L1 = W+P1+T1+H  (OPE)  this is called a basic load case • Sustained Case contains only primary loads.Load Case Definition Load Case Definition • Operating case contains all loads in the Operating case contains all loads in the  system.

Why subtract SUS from OPE? Why subtract SUS from OPE? • Why not simply use L3 = T1 (EXP)? Why not simply use L3 = T1 (EXP)? – Because the restraint configuration may result in  an incorrect solution.  an incorrect solution – Nonlinear restraints drive the restraint  configuration. – Other loads in the system combine to change the  restraint configuration. g .

Nonlinear Restraints Nonlinear Restraints • Stiffness of Restraint changes depending on Stiffness of Restraint changes depending on  position of pipe or forces on restraint. • Examples: Examples:   – Uni‐directional Restraints (+Y) –G Gaps in restraints i i – Friction – Large‐rotation rods – Bi‐linear Restraints .

Total Displacement for T1 (EXP) = 1 x Gap .Example 1:     T1 (EXP) Example 1: T1 (EXP) L3 = T1 (EXP) This is how th li i modeled i Thi i h the line is d l d in Caesar II. The thermal forces have closed the gap on the right side. No loads are yet applied. The gaps are equal on both sides of the pipe.

Example 2:   L1  L2 (EXP) Example 2: L1 – L2 (EXP) L2 = W+P1 (SUS) L1 = W+P1+T1  (OPE) Weight has caused the pipe to close the gap to the left. This can happen when the pipe pivots about a different restraint. even against the weight force trying to hold it on the left. . Operating conditions have caused the pipe to close the gap to the right.

 moments.Combination Methods Combination Methods • Algebraic: g – Used for subtracting two load cases. • Scalar: – Used for adding two load cases. – Unlike algebraic the stresses are not recomputed from  displacements. – Takes the displacements from the referenced cases  and subtracts them. and subtracts them – Then computes forces. and resultant stress  from these displacements. . – Adds the stresses from the two referenced load cases Adds the stresses from the two referenced load cases.

Notes on combination methods Notes on combination methods • Don’t use algebraic for adding two load cases Don t use algebraic for adding two load cases. . – You can’t take credit for occasional loads acting  opposite to operating loads. opposite to operating loads • Don’t use scalar for subtracting two cases. – This results in a lower code stress than actual This results in a lower code stress than actual.
