WRC - BULLETIN 392

DEVELOPING STRESS INTENSIFICATION FACTORS: I - STANDARDIZED METHOD FOR DEVELOPING STRESS INTENSIFICATION FACTORS FOR PIPING COMPONENTS ; II - EFFECTS OF WELD METAL PROFILE ON THE FATIGUE LIFE OF INTEG

active, Most Current
Organization: WRC
Publication Date: 1 June 1994
Status: active
scope:

The first study was conducted to document the method to be used in the experimental determination of stress intensification factors for piping components and joints. It provides a set of proposed additions to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code to guide users in developing stress factors. With minor modification, the same information can also be applied to the ASME B31 piping codes. The second report describes how the guidelines developed in the first study can be used to develop the stress intensification factors for different weld geometries on a typical commercial pipe fitting. The results show how the experimental methodology is applied and how a factor of 2 improvement in the stress intensification factor can be made with extra care in the weld detail. Publication of this document - WRC Bulletin No. 392 was sponsored by the Committee on Piping and Nozzles of the Pressure Vessel Research Council
