ASME Standards are developed and maintained with the intent to represent the consensus of concerned interests. The level 0 assessment calculates the allowable defect length from the maximum defect depth.
Subsequently, an effort was undertaken to update the B31G document to recognize certain other corrosion evaluation methods that have proven sound and that have seen successful use in the pipeline industry. Tatar, FM Global K. Changes given below are identified on the pages by a margin note, 12placed next to the affected area. Information as to whether or not technical inquiries are issued to this code or standard is shown on the copyright page.
Payne, Alstom Power, Inc. Validation of software should include documented evidence that correct results are obtained over the full range of parameters that could reasonably be expected to occur when making evaluations. See the latest News And Updates. Participation by federal agency representative s or person s affiliated with industry is not to be interpreted as government or industry endorsement of this code or standard.
The allowable reference pressure is calculated from the local allowable pressure, and the relative elevation. Larger factors of safety may be appropriate in some cases, e.
All technical inquiries must be submitted in writing to the staff secretary. ASME procedures provide for reconsideration of these interpretations when or if additional information is available which the inquirer believes might affect the interpretation.
All methods described herein have been demonstrated to provide reliable and conservative results when they are applied correctly and within stated limitations.
When calculating the failure stress SFis t the corroded pipe wall thickness? Read across to the column showing the wall thickness of the pipe.
ASME B31G – Free Download PDF
It is applicable to all pipelines and piping systems within the scope of the transportation pipeline codes that are part of ASME B31 Code b31f Pressure Piping, namely: Locate the table corresponding to the size of the pipe, D. Please copy and paste this embed script to where you want to embed Embed Script. The Standards Asmd that approved the Manual was balanced to assure that individuals from competent and concerned interests have had an opportunity to participate.
If the helical pattern lies at an angle less than 45 deg to the pipe axis, the overall length of the corroded area indicated as L1 in Fig.
aeme Approved revisions will be published periodically. Consideration should be given to minimum thresholds of metal loss for reliable detection and sizing, minimum thresholds for reporting, and the expected mode of coating failure e. In the table, locate the row showing a depth equal to the measured maximum depth of the corroded area. There is no single safety factor that is suitable for all types of pipeline construction, for all modes of pipeline operation, or for all types of flaws or anomalies.
A Level 1 evaluation is also suitable for use in prioritizing metal-loss anomalies identified by inline inspection. Paulin, Paulin Research Group B1g. Frikken, Becht Engineering Co. The request for an interpretation should be clear and unambiguous. While each method can be applied as presented, source documents may provide additional information to the user.
Coym, Intertek Moody C. Evaluation of individual deep pits within a generally corroded area should account for the effect of wall loss due to general corrosion.
Revisions are made periodically to the Standard to incorporate changes that appear necessary or desirable, as demonstrated by the experience gained from the application of the Standard. ASME issues written replies to inquiries concerning interpretations of technical aspects of this Manual.
Where more than one definition applies, the various definitions produce acceptable though not necessarily identical results when used with any given evaluation method.
Phrase the question as a request for an interpretation of a specific requirement suitable for general understanding and use, not as ame request for an ssme of a proprietary design or situation. Wall Thickness Corrosion Allowance ttoltype: If using a grid pattern, the analysis must be repeated along each meridian to establish the governing solution. Please fill this form, we will try to respond as soon as possible.
Wall Thickness Schedule Type tnu: The revision of B31G reflected those objectives. This can increase the reassessment interval to the next inline inspection. Each interpretation applies either to the latest Edition at the time of issuance of the interpretation or the Edition stated in the reply. Asne the case where an interpretation is corrected by errata, the original interpretation number with the suffix E is used.
We b31t a non-profit group that run this website to share documents. Pressure derating is required if the allowable pressure is less than the maximum operating pressure. The interpretations have been assigned numbers in chronological order. If the nominal wall thickness is not listed, use the column for the next thinner wall.
If the helical pattern lies at an angle of 45 deg or greater to the pipe axis, it is sufficient to consider the most severe longitudinal section through the corroded area having a length L2 in Fig.
ASME B31G Pipe Corrosion Calculation
Cite the applicable edition of b3g Standard for which the interpretation is being requested. High longitudinal stresses in tension acting on metal loss having a significant circumferential extent, in unrestrained piping, could change the failure mode from longitudinal to circumferential.
Breen, Becht Engineering Co. The b311g of B31G has enabled pipeline operators to reliably determine safe operating pressure levels for pipe affected by corrosion, and to determine whether repairs are necessary in order to continue operating safely. It shall be evaluated for safe operating pressure as with corrosion having a helical angle greater than 45 deg to the pipe axis.
