One of the most important things that must be understood about the ASME B31 Pressure Piping Codes is that the structural analysis methodologies presented there are based upon beam theory albeit they do not preclude other valid methodologies and the software for piping structural analyses are based upon beam theory. Review the loadings on the system weight dead weight and live weight , wind, thermal expansion thrusts, seismic excitation, etc. You must focus upon following the load path all the way to the ground the point where the Civil Engineer takes over responsibility. When working with pressure technology i. Review the fundamentals of beam theory structural analysis.

When working with pressure technology i. Review the fundamentals of beam theory structural analysis.
Again, remember that the Codes and the software are based upon beam theory and in some cases beam theory will not predict the highest stresses that will be developed in some pipe system components. So you must understand the limits of beam theory and learn about methods typically finite element method for modeling individual components and applying forces and moments from your beam theory analysis to your FEA model.
Learn about the strain sensitivity of the equipment to which piping systems are frequently attached rotating equipment and non-rotating equipment. Study the Standards that set the limits for the amount of loading forces and moments that may be safely transferred to this equipment by the piping.
Often referred to in discussion boards. The book is grossly overpriced on the used book market and is now rumored to be available on the Internet as an electronic file. The Piping Handbook, Updated and available. Editor: Mohinder L. Sherwood, Dennis J. The transition from testing results to Code rules was explained in classic papers written by Arthur R.
This book includes in addition to much basic data on piping components many of the papers written by A. Markl that provide the background and theory of the B31 Pressure Piping rules. Try Gwen. Creamer sypris. Mitre Bends - A. Markl and H. Markl, Piping Flexibility Analysis - A. Rodabaugh and H. Murphy, C. Soderberg, H. Blumberg, and D. Markl, E. This is an old book and some of the data is dated but any piping engineer will benefit from reading it cover to cover.
The other book that has suddenly become available again veteran piping engineers will appreciate this is the olde NAVCO Datalog. This little spiral bound gem includes all sorts of valuable piping data. Probably the most data in a small package.
It is important to know where you can go to ask good questions. The sources of information cited above will serve you well for about 70 percent of the piping systems that you are called upon to design.
You will learn techniques for the analysis of buried systems, double containment piping systems, non-metallic piping systems plastic, glass, etc. But the good news is that the community of piping engineers is rich in advice and in most cases quite approachable. Then, observe the protocol of discussion forum etiquette.
First, learn how to use the search function provided by the forum — it is likely that your question may have been asked before, several times. Visit the forums even when you do not have a question as there will be questions asked there that you may not have thought of.
If you follow this path you will only need to add years of actual experience to become a piping engineer who is competent in the static structural analysis of linear elastic piping systems. Then you will be motivated to learn about dynamic analyses and inelastic non-linear systems.

Here is something else that may be helpful to your career goal. By: James O. This includes; the thermal forces and the live and dead loads the piping system imposes on equipment, equipment nozzles and structures. The Pipe Stress Engineer is also responsible for the selecting and specifying stress related products including various types of Expansion Joints, Constant Support Spring Hangers and Snubbers or Struts. What does the Pipe Stress Engineer need to know?
