  • Inelastic Design for Type 316L Stainless Steel at Ambient and 600 °C
           under Uniaxial Loading
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): I. Soner Cinoglu, Ali Charbal, Natasha Vermaak This study aims to determine the safe elastoplastic shakedown limit of type 316L stainless steel at room temperature and at an elevated temperature of 600oC. Components made of type 316L stainless steel are commonly subjected to combined thermomechanical loads in various engineering applications. Shakedown based designs can be used to expand the feasible design space under combined thermomechanical cyclic loading conditions compared to conventional yield-limited designs. Extensive experimental and numerical effort has been made to model ratchetting and cyclic hardening/softening of stainless steels under uniaxial cyclic loading but a very limited number of studies have focused on determining the shakedown limit. In this work, shakedown limits are determined experimentally and numerically. A numerical model that combines time-dependent creep deformation and time-independent hardening is used to develop Bree load-interaction diagrams. It is found that shakedown occurs at room temperature at stress levels up to two times the linear elastic limit of the material and is limited by the time-dependent creep deformation. At 600oC, an enhanced shakedown behavior is observed that expands the feasible design space up to 4 times the linear elastic limit.
       
  • Extreme value modeling of localized internal corrosion in unpiggable
           pipelines
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Carlos Melo, Markus R. Dann, Ron Hugo, Alberto Janeta Localized internal corrosion is one of the main failure mechanisms of energy pipelines. Microbiologically in uenced corrosion (MIC) is a major contributor to internal corrosion in pipelines. Existing research uses extreme value analysis to fit extreme value distributions from data collected through either inspection or experiment to predict localized corrosion. The paper introduces an extreme value model to estimate the depth of localized internal corrosion considering MIC for unpiggable pipelines where inspection data is not available. The depth of material loss is estimated though a combination of corrosion analysis and extreme value modeling. A case study is provided to illustrate the proposed model. The application of a probabilistic approach supports risk-based inspection and maintenance planning for pipelines subject to internal corrosion. abstract
       
  • Three-level assessment for casing in marine gas reservoir
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Xiaohua Zhu, Biao Liu With the large-scale exploitation of marine gas reservoirs in Sichuan, a casing becomes thin, deformed, cracked or even broken after long-term downhole service, seriously restricting the working life of gas wells. To assess the safety of in-use casings, a three-level assessment model of casings is established, which provides a systematic screening and analysis method for the safety evaluation of casings in marine gas reservoirs. By means of factor analysis, feasibility demonstration and result comparison, the three-level assessment is proved to be suitable for casings. The assessment shows that the safety margin of casings rises step by step. The casing with high safety margin can be eliminated by the first level assessment to improve the efficiency and economy of the process, and then the scope of the dangerous case can be reduced by the second level assessment. Finally, the dangerous case and its real safety margin can be identified by the third level assessment to avoid increasing of the maintenance cost because of the excessive safety margin. Therefore, accurate identification and cost reduction can be achieved by three-level assessment.
       
  • Radially Symmetric Response of an FGM Spherical Pressure Vessel under
           Thermal Shock using the Thermally Nonlinear Lord-Shulman Model
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): P. Karimi Zeverdejani, Y. Kiani In the present research, the coupled and non-linear thermo-mechanical response of a functionally graded material (FGM) hollow sphere under thermal shock is investigated. It is assumed that all of the properties of the sphere except for the thermal relaxation time are graded through the radial direction using an exponential representation. The formulation is based on the Lord and Shulman theory which contains a single relaxation time parameter to avoid the infinite speed of temperature wave propagation. Two coupled equations namely energy and motion equations are obtained. These two equations are written in terms of temperature change and radial displacement. The energy equation is kept in its non-linear form and the assumption of small temperature change in comparison to reference temperature is not established in this research. The obtained equations are provided in a dimensionless presentation. After that using the generalised differential quadrature (GDQ) method, nonlinear algebraic presentation of the governing equations is established. Using the successive Picard algorithm and the Newmark time marching scheme, the temporal evolution of the temperature and displacement are obtained. Numerical results are validated for the case of homogeneous sphere with the available data in the open literature. After that, novel numerical results are given to explore the effect of relaxation time, coupling parameter, exponential index and non-linearity of the energy equation.
       
  • Assessment of the defect stability for large structures submitted to
           thermal shock loading through the Gfr criterion
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 February 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): S. Chapuliot, O. Ancelet, S. Marie This paper proposes a formulation and a numerical protocol to allow the application of the Gfr criterion for thick stainless steel components submitted to thermal shock loading. In a first part of the paper, a short description of the criterion initially defined in the S. Marie’s PhD is proposed. The proposition to extend the criterion to thermal loading is then made based on the elastic-plastic stresses determined on the crack free model and the classical influence function formulation.Following this description and proposition of extension, two numerical applications are proposed in order to illustrate the applicability of the modified protocol and its coherence with already existing schemes.In a third part, a validation through the comparison to a large scale test performed on CF8M cast stainless steel material is made. This test was chosen since the Gfr criterion is a candidate for defect stability evaluation in cast components. It is then shown that the parameter can be determined on standard specimen, then used to predict the ductile crack growth in large component made of complex materials such the duplex cast stainless steel.

Tarafder In this present work, we present an accumulated inelastic strain rate based methodology to predict creep fatigue life of two different superalloys i.e. Haynes 282 and IN 718. The evolution of differential strain rate during creep and fatigue respectively motivated the present work. As creep is the rate controlling damage process in creep fatigue interaction, present mean strain based approach considers creep strain rate as a kinetic variable controlling the process. The other variable considered for this approach is accumulative cyclic strain during Creep-fatigue interaction. Our prediction method is purely based upon a relative accumulation of creep and fatigue strain. This method correlates the creep fatigue life with rate of interaction in strain-controlled regions successfully from the data of creep fatigue tests on those superalloys at two temperatures, 650⁰C and 760⁰C. We found suitable microstructure sensitive constants in a lifing model.Graphical abstractImage 1

  • Effect of surface nanocrystallization on low-temperature gas carburization
           for AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 2 February 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Zhe Liu, Yawei Peng, Chaoming Chen, Jianming Gong, Yong Jiang In this paper, the effect of surface nanocrystallization on low-temperature gas carburization (LTGC) for AISI316L austenitic stainless steel was studied. Surface ultrasonic rolling processing (SURP) was used to prepare the nanostructured surface layers and then the un-SURP and SURP specimens were treated by LTGC at 430 and 470 for 10 h, 20 h and 30 h. After the SURP treatment, the thickness of plastic deformation layer was about 350 μm and the compressive residual stress generated on the surface was −857.67 ± 55.54 MPa. In addition, the surface roughness decreased obviously. The SURP treatment has a negative effect on the thickness of the carburized layer but it significantly increases the carbon concentration, nanohardness, elastic modulus and compressive residual stress of the outer surface of the carburized layer. However, these parameters then rapidly decreased along the depth of the carburized layer. Both SURP and LTGC could significantly strengthen the surface of AISI316L steel and the combination of the two would achieve better surface properties.

  • Study of bolt load scatter due to tightening sequence
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 29 January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Ibai Coria, Mikel Abasolo, Josu Aguirrebeitia, Iker Heras When a bolt is tightened, significant dispersion between the target preload and the obtained preload may be found. As a consequence, when bolts are subsequently tightened during the assembly process of a bolted joint, the dispersion is propagated leading to a higher scatter in the final bolt load distribution. In this sense, the final bolt loads may differ considerably from the target values. This work presents a methodology to study this phenomenon, providing the final bolt load range with a 3σ confidence interval for different assembly strategies, and compares the strengths and weaknesses of each of them, in order to find the most appropriate tightening strategy for each application.
       
  • Investigating the branching redesign strategy for surge control in
           pressurized steel piping systems
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Mohamed Amir Chaker, Ali Triki A compound technique-based branching design strategy was implemented to limit the wave oscillation period spreading induced by the conventional method. Basically, this technique used a ramified short-penstock made up of a couple of plastic material types including high- and low-density polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE). The simulations were performed using the method of characteristics (MOC) to discretize the one-dimensional unconventional water-hammer model. Case studies included up and down initiated surge scenarios. Results demonstrated that, comparatively, the compound technique exhibited significant improvement. In fact, the (HDPE–LDPE) sub-short-penstock layout-based compound technique (where the former corresponds to the dead end extremity of the short-penstock and the latter is lumped to the steel pipe) allowed a higher attenuation of pressure surge magnitude and a lower spreading of wave oscillation period. Furthermore, examination of the employed plastic sub-short-penstock lengths and diameters dependency upon the surge magnitude attenuation and wave oscillation period spreading helped estimate the near-optimal design values of the sub-short-penstock diameter and length.Graphical abstractImage 1
       
  • Plastic collapse of thin-walled elasto-plastic pipes under internal
           pressure and superposed axial loading
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Rodinei Lopes Junior, Mauro Missao Watanabe Junior, Victor Barbosa De Souza, João Reis, Heraldo S. Da Costa Mattos This paper is concerned with the failure analysis of elasto-plastic thin-walled pipes under combined internal pressure and axial loading (monotonic or alternating). Depending on the loading history (pressure and axial loading histories) the pipe may exhibit a different mechanical behavior due to the progressive accumulation of plastic deformation. The study, performed under different loading histories, is adequate to identify the history dependent failure pressure. The analysis of the results allows obtaining a very simple safety criterion for the plastic collapse. The main result is that, regardless the load history, a safe region can be defined analytically in the space of circumferential and axial stresses. A comparison of the theoretical predictions with experiments shows coherent preliminary results. The simplified methodology proposed in this study provides a safe and reliable preliminary tool for designers and engineers that can be used to help to plan inspection and preventive maintenance.
       
  • A simplified boundary condition method for conducting shock resistance
           analyses of warship piping systems
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 9 January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Jun Guo, Xun Zhao, Yin Zhang, Chen Ji, N.A. Taranukha The shock resistance of ship piping systems is very difficult to study owing to the large scales of such systems, and the high level and variability of the impact loading involved. To address these issues, the present work establishes a numerical model of pipe systems based on multi-span beam bending moment theory. An analysis of the bending moments of different multi-span continuous beams under static loading demonstrates that the simplified model employing just five spans provides a bending moment for target equal diameter straight tube (EDST) segments that deviates from theoretical calculations by less than 1%. Moreover, the bending moments obtained by the five-span model for a target EDST segment deviate by only about 4% from corresponding results obtained by the finite element (FE) method under both uniformly distributed static loading and complex static loading. The proposed simplified five-span model is then employed to calculate the stress responses obtained at individual critical points in a complex piping system under impact loading. The results obtained deviate at most by less than 15% from corresponding results obtained from the FE method based on the overall piping system model. Moreover, the average deviation for all critical points considered was only 5.87%. http://fanyi.baidu.com/- ##http://fanyi.baidu.com/- zh/en/javascript:void(0); The results show that the shock response obtained using the simplified five-span model is essentially equivalent to that of the complex model. The proposed simplified five-span method is thereby demonstrated to be reasonable for simplifying large-scale complex piping systems when conducting shock resistance research.
       
  • Optimal winding angle in laminated CFRP composite pipes under pure patch
           loading: Analytical study and experimental validation
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): S. Sharifi, Soheil Gohari, Colin Burvill, Zora Vrcelj This research was conducted into obtaining the optimal winding angle (φ) in laminated carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite pipes under patch loading. To observe the sole effect of winding angle on the pipe's mechanical strength, the stacking sequence of the composite laminates ([φ/-φ/φ/-φ/φ]) was kept constant. An analytical investigation based on linear membrane shell theory was first adapted to obtain the radial displacements (w) along the radial direction (z). The double Fourier series expansion was used during the analytical investigation. Two crucial factors were considered when selecting the optimal winding angle: (1) the minimum difference between the inward (compression) and outward (tensile) radial displacements and (2) the minimum radial deflection at the circumference where patch loading is applied (θ = 00). The optimal winding angle (φ = 55°) was obtained through classical trial and error technique. The analytical results for φ = 55° were then validated by the experimental investigation. Due to lack of the experimental investigation into radial deformation analysis of laminated composite pipes under patch loading, the manufacturing and test procedures of the concerned issue was discussed comprehensively. The pipe with optimal stacking sequence [55°/-55°/55°/-55°/55°] was first manufactured using the filament winding machine and then subjected to patch loading using the INSTRON machine. The experimental tests were conducted considering three arbitrarily selected circumferential angles θ=(0°,48°,77°). The radial displacement at θ = 0° was measured using the INSTRON machine. The radial displacements at θ=(48°,77°) were simultaneously measured using a laser displacement sensor (model: ANR 1150) and a dial indicator (model: 0.01–30 mm Mitutoyo), respectively. Ultimately, the radial displacements for a loading range of F = [0-800] (N) were obtained. There was good agreement between the analytical and experimental results which can be used as a useful guideline to design and manufacture laminated composite pipes with elevated section.
       
  • Alternative design of buried pipelines at active fault crossings using
           flexible joints
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Alexandros I. Valsamis, George D. Bouckovala, Charis J. Gantes The use of “flexible joints” in buried high-pressure pipelines is examined herein as a effective design technique for the mitigation of Permanent Ground Displacement (PGD) due to fault activation. Pipeline joints that are available in the industry today are analyzed in connection with the needs of high-pressure pipelines in areas of seismic faults. The efficiency of this novel technique is examined through a series of parametric numerical analyses for both strike-slip and normal faults, while its applicability in common engineering problems is examined through an economic-technical comparison with more conventional techniques. It is concluded that the use of flexible joints provides a cost-efficient design method that can drastically reduce pipeline strains, for medium to large fault displacements.
       
  • Quantification of conservatism in pressure vessel design subjected to
           long-term creep conditions as per ASME Section VIII division 2
    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping, Volume 180Author(s): Hyeong-Yeon Lee, Ji-Young Jeong ASME Section VIII Division 2 (ASME VIII(2)) is widely used for the design of not only low-temperature but also high-temperature pressure boundary components operating at high temperature in creep range. In the high-temperature design of a pressure boundary component such as a pressure vessel or a heat exchanger according to ASME VIII(2), creep effects are not considered explicitly, and the design evaluation results do not change depending on hold times at high temperature, which certainly does matter in the high-temperature design of a component subjected to long-term creep conditions. Sensitivity analyses with various hold times at high temperature in design evaluations were conducted as per Section III Division 5 Subsection HB(ASME-HB) and RCC-MRx that explicitly take creep hold time into account to investigate the hold-time effects on design evaluations for an IHX and reservoir tank in the large-scale sodium test facility of the STELLA-2. The conservatism of ASME VIII(2) in the case of long hold time has been quantified based on the comparisons in design evaluations as per ASME VIII(2) with those of ASME-HB and RCC-MRx. It was shown from the comparisons that ASME VIII(2) results exceed the design limits of ASME-HB and RCC-MRx if hold time exceeds a certain time limit, which means ASME VIII(2) might give non-conservative results in the case of long-term hold time at high temperature.
       
  • Prediction of fracture toughness of SA738Gr.B steel in the ductile-brittle
           transition using master curve method and bimodal master curve method
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 3 January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Ya Lin Zhang, Hu Hui, Jun Bao Zhang, Zhong Qiang Zhou, Xindan Hu, Xiangchun Cong The low temperature fracture toughness of SA738Gr.B steel is as important as its strength, but the low temperature fracture toughness tends to be more complicated due to some deterministic and random inhomogeneity, such as sampling locations. In this paper, the fracture toughness of the 60 mm thick SA738Gr.B sheet in DBT region from the surface to the center was characterized by MC method and BMC method. Considering the sampling position, a distinct trend is found that the toughness of the surface is significantly higher than that of the center and T0 is lower from center to the surface due to the faster quenching rate. Special attention was paid on the discussion of the applicability of China-produced SA738Gr.B steel to the master curve (MC) method. It was found that the inhomogeneity caused the actual distribution of the experimental data to deviate from the three-parameter weibull distribution, and the weibull slope was lower than the theoretical value of 4. Characterizing the fracture toughness of materials containing heterogeneous components by the MC method can overestimate the fracture toughness and may pose a potential hazard. The BMC method can effectively solve the problem of material inhomogeneity. It is an evaluation method based on the actual toughness distribution of materials. The BMC method takes into account the influence of material inhomogeneity on the toughness estimation, and more accurate assessment of material scatter than the standard MC method yields a slightly conservative but more appropriate prediction.
       
  • A review of thermal, microstructural and constitutive modelling of 9Cr
           steel for power plant applications: Towards a through-process model for
           structural integrity of welded connections
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 January 2020Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): P. Mac Ardghail, S.B. Leen, N. Harrison Life prediction for 9Cr steel welded components is an important issue facing power plant as it moves from steady-state, base-load operation to transient, flexible operation. Welding and heat-treatment of 9Cr components alters the steel microstructure to produce a heat-affected zone, which is susceptible to early failure under creep and high-temperature cyclic conditions. Optimal welding and heat treatment processes cannot feasibly be identified experimentally but finite element simulation is a practical solution to this problem. A review of modelling methodologies for welding, heat treatment and in-service operation in thermal power plant for 9Cr steel is presented here. The authors consider that macro-scale, physically-based models are the most promising models currently available since they account for changes in material microstructure while still being practical for simulations involving component-sized FE geometries.
       
  • Damage tolerant analysis of corner cracks in small nozzle process
           penetration of the CAREM-25 reactor pressure vessel
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 December 2019Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Marcos A. Bergant, Alejandro A. Yawny, Juan E. Perez Ipiña This paper presents a damage tolerant approach assessment of corner cracks in small nozzle process penetrations in the pressure vessel of the small modular reactor CAREM-25 subjected to mechanical and thermal shock loadings during certain operation events. Fracture mechanics analyses were performed following ASME XI guidelines considering a representative geometry and specific loading conditions. Stress distributions in the uncracked component were calculated by finite element techniques, while fracture driving forces were estimated using closed form solutions. Maximum allowable corner crack sizes were calculated using linear elastic fracture mechanics and failure assessment diagram (FAD) approaches. The onset of stable crack growth and crack instability were considered as failure conditions. Additionally, fatigue crack growth estimations during the service life were performed integrating a Paris law up to the maximum allowable crack sizes. The results indicate that it seems unlikely that pre-existing cracks reach allowable sizes during the reactor's service life.
       
  • Modeling of hydrogen diffusion in duplex stainless steel based on
           microstructure using finite element method
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 December 2019Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): Ping Tao, Jianming Gong, Yanfei Wang, Weiwei Cen, Jiaxi Zhao Duplex stainless steels (DSS) are subjected to a deleterious effect known as hydrogen assisted cracking (HAC). Revealing the hydrogen diffusion behavior in DSS is the key to understanding the mechanism of HAC, since hydrogen diffusivity and solubility are different in ferrite and austenite. In this study, finite element (FE) analyses on hydrogen diffusion behavior in DSS were performed by considering the combined effect of heterogeneous microstructure and hydrostatic stress with the help of finite element program-ABAQUS. Two-dimensional dual-phase models with representative volume element were applied based on the obtained microstructure using optical microscopy. The constant loading catholic charging experiments were also carried out to provide comparative results for characterization on the susceptibility of DSS to HAC. Results indicate that hydrogen diffusion in DSS is strongly dependent on the morphological diversity of microstructure. Compared to the coupled analysis with stress effect, hydrogen diffusivity and concentration are observed with an increase, and experimental results show that most of the HAC cracks initiate in the ferrite phase and arrested by austenite.Graphical abstractImage 1
       
  • Out-of-plane constraint loss in three point bend specimens with notches
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 5 December 2019Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and PipingAuthor(s): A.J. Horn, S. Cicero, D. Andrés This paper presents an experimental and numerical study of the effect of specimen thickness on the effective notch toughness Kmatρ for cleavage fracture measured using Single Edge Notch Bend (SENB) specimens containing a U-notch instead of a fatigue pre-crack. These specimens are typically used to measure a material's effective notch toughness Kmatρ and to assess failure of a structure containing a non-sharp defect using the Notch Failure Assessment Diagram (NFAD). Both the experimental data and the Finite Element (FE) failure predictions show a significant influence of specimen thickness on Kmatρ, over and above the microstructural weakest link effect arising from differences in the volume of the plastic zone. Kmatρ is a function of not only the in-plane effect of the notch radius, but also an out-of-plane constraint loss which itself is enhanced by the presence of the notch radius. Significant out-of-plane constraint loss occurred for notched specimens with a ratio of thickness B to width W of 0.5, a geometry that if pre-cracked would have met the minimum thickness requirement mandated by ASTM E1820. Doubling the thickness to B/W = 1.0 was sufficient to eliminate the out-of-plane constraint loss. The use of experimentally measured Kmatρ values in an NFAD assessment of a structure may therefore be non-conservative if B/W
