At SPECS, Pipe stress analysis is an analytical method to determine how a Plant or Piping system behaves based on its material, pressure, temperature, fluid, and support either above ground or underground.
This analysis calculates piping stresses resulting from thermal cycles, pipe and fitting weights and static pressure for the main process piping. Generally, we evaluates stress due to thermal cycles, weight, and static pressures in the piping as per all industry piping codes, such as B31.3, B31.8, CSA Z662, BS826, BS7159, FDBR, DNV and others.
We calculate loads on equipment (e.g., piping’s, vessels, coolers, pumps, and compressors) and make recommendations to meet up with industry standards.
- Simulate Operational Plant and Piping Vibration Pattern and deflections
- Recommends pipe layout, pipe support, and clamp designs and lots more.
Vibration-induced fatigue, pipe stress, transient events and small-bore connections are high-risk areas requiring SPECS engineering support.
At SPECS, we help you paddle towards prevention rather than reaction.
