ASME procedures provide for reconsideration of these interpretations when or if additional information is available which the inquirer believes might affect the interpretation.
Linear interpolation of strength values is allowed between listed temperatures. 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 aske pipeline industry.

PIPELINE CORROSION ASSESSMENT – ASME B31G COMPLIANCE
When calculating the failure stress SFis t the corroded pipe wall thickness? Information as to whether or not b31gg inquiries are issued to this code or standard is shown on the copyright page. If spaced sufficiently closely, the metal loss areas may interact so as to result b31h failure at a lower pressure than would be expected based on an analysis of the separate flaws. Also, the combination of hoop stress due to internal pressure and longitudinal compression could interact to lower the failure pressure in the metal loss area.
Consideration shall be given to the disposition of workmanship flaws or manufacturing flaws within a weld or seam that could interact with metal loss due to corrosion.
Asem has also been recognized, through theoretical analysis, scientific research and testing, and industry operating experience, that some amount of metal loss due to corrosion can be tolerated without impairing the ability of the pipeline to operate safely. The tables are carried over without change from previous editions of B31G and have been supplemented by the addition of tables in metric units.
ASME Standards are developed and maintained with the intent to represent the consensus of concerned interests. Wall Thickness Schedule Type tnu: Wall Thickness Fabrication Allowance tm: Evaluation of the circumferential extent of corrosion subject 1. Please copy and paste this embed script to where you want to asmee Embed Script.
The Effective Area Method is expressed as follows: The level 0 assessment calculates the allowable defect length from the maximum defect depth. The flow stress can be calculated as either 1. Beyer, Fluor Enterprises, Inc. The proposed Manual was made available for public review and comment that provides an opportunity for additional public input from industry, academia, regulatory agencies, and the public-at-large.
Silvia, Process Engineers and Constructors, Inc. Measured Outside Circumference ODu: Determine pipe diameter and nominal wall thickness from appropriate records or direct measurement of the pipe. Locate the table corresponding to the size of the pipe, D. Depth, d, mm 8. The B31 Standards Committee regularly holds meetings, which are open to the public.
Changes given below are identified on the pages by a margin note, 12placed next to the affected area. Care should be taken when cleaning corroded areas of a b31 pipe.
[Pipeline Corrosion Assessment] – ASME B31G Compliance | Creaform
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. It is not the intention of this document to prohibit their use, but the user of such methods shall be able to demonstrate that the objective of a safe and reliable assessment of metal loss can be b31.
Bodenhamer, Enterprise Products Co. If the helical pattern lies v31g an angle less than 45 deg to the pipe axis, the overall length of the corroded area indicated as L1 in Fig.
Wall Thickness Fabrication Fraction. Incorporation of these other methods into a recognized Code document provides the pipeline operator or other user with a formalized framework within which to use such methodologies, as well as a g31g range of codified technical options with which to make an evaluation.
Diameter Over Wall Thickness Ratio b31gg Wall Thickness Fabrication Tolerance Type tfu: Our representatives are ready to assist you in the following areas: October 24, The next edition of this Manual is scheduled for publication in In the case where an interpretation is corrected by errata, the original interpretation number with the suffix E is used.
The methods and criteria provided herein do not address failure by perforation.
Validation may be demonstrated by comparison of calculated results against published benchmark test data such as that found in the above reference, or against results produced by another recognized evaluation method that have been calculated in accordance with this Standard. In addition, the following considerations apply: Read across to the column showing the wall thickness of the pipe.
B31J Pipeline Personnel Qualification. Soni, Delegate, Engineers India Ltd. Frey, Stress Engineering Service, Inc. The methods and criteria provided herein do not address circumferential failure due to high longitudinal tensile stresses.
