ASME does not take any position with respect to the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any items mentioned in this document, and does not undertake to insure anyone utilizing a standard against liability for infringement of any applicable letters patent, nor assumes any such liability. This definition remains an inherent element of the Level 0 assessment and is recommended with the Level 1 assessment performed in accordance with para.

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 wider range of codified technical options with which to make an evaluation. Size px x x x x User Defined Outside Diameter schedtype: Information as to whether or not technical inquiries are issued to this code or standard is shown on the copyright page.

G31g technical inquiries must be submitted in writing to the staff secretary. Appleby, ExxonMobil Development Co. Select an evaluation method and calculate the estimated failure stress, SF.

Read across to the column showing the wall thickness of the pipe. Lesser factors of safety may be justified in some circumstances, e. Correspondence B31h the B31 Committee.

b331g Rangus, Ex-Officio, Bechtel J. Statistical representations of material properties may be used with Levels 1, 2, or 3 for purpose of establishing a probability of failure; however, the details of such analyses are outside the scope of asem document.


In the case where an interpretation is corrected by errata, the original interpretation number with the suffix E is used. Wall Thickness Schedule Type tnu: The value, L, found at the intersection of the wall thickness column and the depth row is the maximum allowable longitudinal extent of such a corroded area.

They provide a ready reference of maximum corrosion lengths for a range of pipe sizes and depths of corrosion. Metal-loss corrosion anomalies indicated by inline inspection may be evaluated by a Level 1 or Level 2 evaluation method. The methods and criteria provided herein do not address buckling or wrinkling, or interaction of hoop stress with longitudinal compressive stresses.

ASME B31G Pipe Corrosion Calculation

Define an acceptable safety factor, SF. ASME Standards are developed and maintained with the intent to represent the consensus of concerned interests. Linear interpolation g31g strength values is allowed between listed temperatures. It is intended that a Level 0 evaluation be conducted in the field without the need for performing detailed calculations.

When evaluating anomalies identified by inline inspection, use of larger factors of safety will result in smaller flaws being left in service following field investigation and pipeline repairs. Please copy and paste this embed script to where you want to embed Embed Script.

ASME B31G Corrosion Calculator : Pipeng Toolbox

Corrosion may occur with a circumferential orientation, e. Also, the combination of hoop stress due to internal pressure and longitudinal compression could interact to lower the b31b pressure in the metal loss area. Pressure derating is required if the allowable pressure is less asne the maximum operating pressure. The request should identify the standard, the paragraph, figure or table number sand be as,e as a Question and Reply in the same format as existing Cases.

It is not a property specified in a material grade or finished product standard. Evaluation of the circumferential extent of corrosion subject 1.

Wall Thickness Fabrication Tolerance Type tfu: For consistency in comparison to results obtained from evaluations performed to an earlier edition, use of the same definition for flow stress is recommended. The Effective Area Method is expressed as follows: Research indicates that it may be defined variously as given below.


They were calculated from the equations for a Level 1 evaluation in accordance with the original B31G methodology. Bodenhamer, Enterprise Products Co. Cite the applicable paragraph number s and the topic of the inquiry. The B31 Standards Committee regularly holds meetings, which are open to the public. These tables are carried over without change from earlier editions of ASME B31G and have been supplemented by the addition of tables in metric units.

For submerged pipelines, or to calculate the allowable pressure at a reference elevation, use the level 1 and level 2 calculators including elevation. It typically relies on detailed measurements of the corroded surface profile, accounting for the actual distribution of metal loss, and involves repetitive computations that may be facilitated by the use of computer software or spreadsheets.

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 achieved.


Wall Thickness Fabrication Allowance tm: These replies are taken verbatim from the original letters, except for a few typographical and editorial corrections made for the purpose of improved clarity. Level 2 evaluations shall be carried out using a procedure similar to the ten 7 ASME B31G and external forces; boundary conditions and constraints; ovality, deformations, misalignments, and discontinuities; material stress—strain characteristics; and effects of the flaw on the overall distribution of loads and stresses.

The tables were designed to provide a minimum factor of safety of 1. When calculating the hoop stress SO or Shis t in this case the corroded pipe wall thickness?
