What is thermal bowing?

Viewed 1189 times since Thu, Jan 24, 2013 Thermal bowing is the bending of pipe caused by thermal expansion. Deformed Pipe Read More Does materials incompatibility play a role on stress analysis? Viewed 965 times since Mon, Jan 28, 2013 Usually it would show a disparity between stresses at a particular point. For example, a carbon steel element joined to a stainless steel element would show significantly different stresses over the same temperature change. Fluoroplastic... Read More Does an anchor restrict motion in all direction that is X-Y-Z directions? Viewed 803 times since Fri, Jan 25, 2013 Anchors will restrict movement in all directions and will also restrict the rotation of the pipe as well. In the stress analysis, we may see loads in all three directions which will tell us how "strong" the anchor device has to be. Cold Shoe... Read More What is pipe wake? Viewed 741 times since Thu, Jan 24, 2013 Pipe wake is the vibrations caused by turbulent flow in piping systems. Custom Designed Sway Braces Read More How do you know when you are above the maximum force that the system can take? Viewed 708 times since Thu, Jan 24, 2013 The maximum force (allowable load) is based upon the yield strength of the material with a safety factor. If your calculated load is greater than the maximum force load, then you are above the allowable load and you will start to see deformation and... Read More Why is the thermal analysis done at the design temperature? Viewed 666 times since Thu, Jan 24, 2013 The thermal analysis is done at the design temperature because you are designing the system for its most extreme case, where the temperatures are the hottest and the movements are the greatest. Stress Analysis Test Read More What is creep? Viewed 660 times since Thu, Jan 24, 2013 Creep is the tendency of a solid material to move slowly or deform permanently under the influence of stress. Deformed Expansion Joint Read More How do you define a hydro-test pressure based on design pressure? Viewed 541 times since Mon, Aug 12, 2013 Hydro-test pressure and holding times vary for different design codes. For example, the ASME SEC VIII Div.1 general hydro-test pressure will be 1.3 x design pressure (minor factors may vary for this equation as well) and for piping design... Read More
