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.
Corrosion may occur with a circumferential orientation, e. ASME issues written replies to inquiries concerning interpretations of technical aspects of this Manual.
Minimum Wall Thickness tn: The detailed profile is established by obtaining several measurements of metal loss or remaining wall thickness throughout the metal loss area. Errata to codes and standards may be posted on the ASME Web site under the Committee Pages to provide corrections to incorrectly published items, or to correct typographical or grammatical errors in codes and standards. This can increase the reassessment interval to the next inline inspection.
For consistency in comparison to results obtained from evaluations performed to an earlier edition, use of the same definition for flow stress aeme recommended.
Appleby, ExxonMobil Development Co. Page Location Change 2 1. The application of B31G has enabled pipeline operators to reliably determine safe operating pressure levels for pipe affected by corrosion, and to determine whether repairs are necessary in order to continue operating safely.
The b31v 2 assessment calculates assme allowable pressure from the defect “river bottom” profile using the effective area method also known as the RSTRENG method.
Increments of measurement need not be uniform, subject to limitations of application software. Where the term pipeline is used, it may also be read to apply to piping or pipe conforming to the acceptable applications and within the technical limitations discussed below. It shall be evaluated for safe operating pressure as with corrosion having a helical angle greater than asmw deg to the pipe axis.
Grichuk, Fluor Enterprises, Inc. Frikken, Becht Engineering Co. H31g, the tables may show that b31gg given corroded area is unsuitable for the current 2. Lesser factors of safety may be justified in some circumstances, e. B311g t represent the uncorrroded pipe wall thickness? Pressure Design Wall Thickness xf: Depth, d, mm 8.
ASME B31G Pipe Corrosion Calculation
In the table, locate the row axme a depth equal to the measured maximum depth of the corroded area. The B31G document provided pipeline operators aame a simplified evaluation method based on the results of analysis and tests. Use either the nominal pipe diameter and wall thickness, or the measured pipe diameter and wall thickness for the ASME B31G checks.
The metal loss area on the pipe is acceptable if its measured length, L, does not exceed the value of L given in the table.
This definition remains an inherent element of the Level 0 assessment and is recommended with the Level 1 assessment performed in accordance with para. The user is cautioned against overstating the precision of evaluations applied with flaw dimensions indicated by inline inspection without adequate calibration or verification of actual flaw sizes by investigations carried out in the field.
If the exact measured value is not listed, choose the row showing the next greater depth. Cite the applicable edition of the Standard for which the interpretation is being requested.
Each interpretation applies either to the latest Edition at the time of issuance of axme interpretation or the Edition stated in the reply. Information as to whether or not technical inquiries are issued to this code or standard is shown on the copyright page. The methods and criteria provided herein do not address buckling or wrinkling, or interaction of hoop stress with longitudinal compressive stresses.
ASME B31G is suitable for blunt defects of all types, including corrosion, mechanical damage and grinding repairs etc.
All technical inquiries must be submitted in writing to the staff secretary. The request should identify the standard, the paragraph, figure or table number sand be written as a Question and Reply in the same format as existing Cases. We need your help to maintenance this website. Persons wishing to attend any meeting should contact the Secretary of the B31 Standards Committee.
When calculating the hoop stress SO or Shis t in this case the corroded pipe wall thickness? Evaluation of g31g circumferential extent of corrosion subject 1.
Metal-loss corrosion anomalies indicated by inline inspection may be evaluated by a Level 1 or Level 2 evaluation method. Owing to its iterative nature, it is a practical necessity to use a computer program or other algorithmic approach e.
Locate the table corresponding to the size of the pipe, D. The nominal pipe diameter and wall thickness or the measured pipe diameter and wall thickness can be aasme for the ASME B31G checks. It is intended that a Level 0 evaluation be conducted in the field without the need for performing detailed calculations. They provide a ready reference of maximum corrosion lengths for b1g range of pipe sizes and depths of corrosion.

A Level 1 evaluation is also suitable for use in prioritizing metal-loss anomalies identified by inline inspection. Depth, d, mm 0.
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. Where more than one definition applies, the various definitions produce acceptable though not necessarily identical results when used with any given evaluation method.
If known with confidence, the actual uncorroded wall thickness may be used with a Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 evaluation, with a suitable adjustment of the hoop stress due to internal pressure. For a corroded profile defined by n measurements of depth of corrosion including the end points at nominally full wall thickness, n!

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. A majority of these other methods are based b31f the same theoretical model from which the original B31G method was derived, but may offer some refinement in accuracy. Select an evaluation method and assme the estimated failure stress, SF. Research indicates that it may be defined variously as given below.
