Is 95% of allowable thermal expansion stress range cause for concern?
The stress that is generated by thermal expansion is self-limiting in nature. These self-limiting stresses behave quite differently from the sustained stress caused by weight and pressure. In a sustained loading condition the stress generated has to be in static balance with the applied load. On the other hand, when a pipe is subjected to…Read More

10 Different Reasons to get boundary conditions correct…
10 different reasons to get your boundary conditions correct and inclusive of a complete piping system when doing pipe stress analysis. B31.1 Power Piping Code says so on Page 32, right before it goes into Stress Due to Sustained Loads. B31.3 defines a piping system as interconnected piping B31.3 states it more clearly here… I…Read More
