6. CHAIRS REPORT
None

7. LIAISON REPORTS

7.1 MDC & B31 Standards (E, G, H, J) B. Holbrook / R. Haupt


Mr. Holbrook reported that the B31 MDC last met in Chicago in September, they really only
cleaned up the agenda and talked about the SIF project. Mr. Haupt reported that B31J as
balloted will be similar to B31.1 Appendix D; a list of all of the SIFs and the first annex is the
old B31J. There will hopefully be a meeting in the spring to push the agenda further.

7.2 Fabrication and Examination P. Flenner


Mr. Flenner reported that they last met in Chicago in September. They went through the comments
received from the technical committee on the B31P standard. He noted that he has a lot of work to
do to work through the comments that were received and come to a resolution. They will be adding
on appendices regarding alternatives to heat treatment like temperbead and fracture mechanics.

7.3 Section IX (B&PVC) P. Flenner


Mr. Flenner reported that there was a proposal for welder certification by an AWS accredited
program

7.4 B16 Committees M. Nayyar


No report.

7.5 EPRI M. Cohn & Dana Couch


See pages 45-51 for a copy of the EPRI Highlights provided by Mr. Cohn.

7.6 B31.3 R. Haupt, P. Flenner, D. Rahoi


Mr. Haupt reported that their next meeting is scheduled for April. He noted that they have a
much more aggressive equation for sustained loads than B31.1. They do not have an
equation for occasional loads; they use a term called sustained stress indices. We might
want to consider their approach for in plane and out of plane SIFs.
7.7 Section II (B & PVC) D. Rahoi
Mr. Rahoi reported that at the last meeting they came to a consensus about powder
metallurgy specifications and materials. Until -50F the point at which it becomes time
dependent they can be used with the same info as wrought materials; the allowable stress
values would be the same.

7.8 BPV I T. Hansen
See page 52-53 for a copy of the report provided by Mr. Hansen.

7.9 MSS R.P. Deubler


Please see page 54 for a copy of the report provided by Mr. Deubler.

7.10 ASME Comm. On Post Const. S. Findlan


No report.

7.11 NBIC
Mr. Miletti reported that they had a significant item of interest regarding thick wall repairs
without postweld heat treatment. They want to make sure that everyone is well educated in
the dangers that this may present. There is a national board alternative weld repair for thick
wall tubes with very strict rules for personnel safety.

7.12 BPTCS W. Lundy


No report

7.13 PSP Forum T. Monday


The following presentations were given at Mondays PSP Forum:
1. Code Compliant UT vs Service UT Exams in High Energy Piping - Dave Overton
2. Case Studies Aged Constant Supports & Unintended Stress Bill Goedde
3. Bench Marking Pipe Supports Joe Frey
4. Distinguishing Non-optimum Heat Treatments of Grade 91 Base Metal Marvin Cohn

7.15 MTC P. Deubler
Please see page 55 for a copy of the report provided by Mr. Deubler.

7.16 PFI T. Monday


Mr. Monday reported that they have not met since the last time this committee met so there
is nothing new to report.

7.17 B31.1 IWG Dan Christian


Mr. Christian reported that the B31.1 IWG India was supposed to have met in November but
did not. In order to keep active IWG members involved Colleen will reach out to them and
propose them as contributing members on various subgroups.

7.18 NFPA H. Simpson


No report

7.19 Nonmetallic Pressure Piping Standards Committee - C. Henley, L. Vetter


Mr. Henley reported that they are working on three simultaneous books, NM-1, NM-2 and NM-3. All
chapters and sections of all three books have gone through subcommittee and about half at
Standards. They are about two months away from balloting the entire document to the standards
committee and board. The goal is to publish by the end of this year, once they are published B31.1
will need to review them to see how to reinforce/incorporate.

8. NEW BUSINES
Harrys Files
Mr. Holbrook reported that Harry was a member of B31.1 for more than 40 years. Brian made an effort
to speak with Mrs. Ainsworth after the sept meeting and expressed the committees condolences. Brian
got a note from Harrys son and indicated that they are in the process of cleaning out the house and
there are boxes of files that may be of use to the committee.

B31.1 05-0754 Para. 115 Revision Status (160127)

The agenda item was balloted in late spring of 2015 and was disapproved. The primary
objections to the proposed revision to para. 115 were the definitions that were used for
components and joints which are respectively discussed in Parts 3 and 4 of B31.1. There were
no significant objections to the technical proposal for how to qualify mechanical joints except for
some minor word-smithing. Rather, the definitions were thought to be too verbose and/or
unnecessary. It should be remembered that this agenda item is the first of a two part proposed
action to reorganize a jumbled Part 3 (for components) and Part 4 (for joints) which have not
been significantly worked on in 40 years. With attention to the definitions, this should be ready
for reballot shortly.

TR 15-1343
B31.1; Review Para. 104.8.1 and 104.8.2 and eliminate the need for two equations

Background:
This TR was originally TR 13-1586 which was closed as it was decided to include it in TR 06-1228, however this proved to be difficult and hence a new TR is
requested to replace TR 13-1586.

The word design to be removed from definition of pressure, P
The designation P to be changed to Ps to designate normal operating pressure in equation (15)

B31.1; Investigate Longitudinal
Welds on Bends and Elbows

Pipe Bending: Where to Locate the Weld Seam

Except for seamless tubing and pipe, the other grades of tubing and pipe have a longitudinal
weld seam. When pipe bending is done, the question often arises about where to locate the
weld seam.

Possibilities include putting the weld seam on the inside radius of the bend, on the outside

106
radius of the bend, and on the centerline radius of the bend.

11-1045 Couch 13-519RC1 Standards Committee Ballot
Revise Fig 127.4.4(c), Socket Weld Fittings
[2/1/00] This item was taken out as a tracking TR for B31 F&E changes to socket Weld Fittings.
This item is waiting on F&E Technical Committee action.
[6/6/00] Still waiting on F&E technical committee.
[10/24/00] No report.
[1/30/01] Still waiting on F&E technical committee.
[6/5/01] No report.
[11/13/01] Still waiting on B31 F&E/TC Item FE 90-12 and MDC/TC MD 90-08d.
[1/29/02] This remains on hold pending further action by the B31 TCs. Mr. Sommerfeld
requested a copy of the B31 TC Minutes.
[6/4/02] [9/24/02] No report. (Note that the FETC meeting considered this issue and that
information will be sent to the sponsor.)
[1/28/03] No report.
[5/28/03] No report required. Reassigned to S. Findlan.
[9/23/03] No Report. This is expected to address weld requirements and insert depth.
[2/3/04] Due to recent activity at EPPRI RRAC, the insertion depth may include details at both
ends of the socket. A ballot should be issued by the next meeting.
[5/25/04] A ballot will be issued by Labor Day, 2004. (Note: A similar item was covered in
B31.3, which will be forwarded to the PTM.)
[9/21/04] The B31.3 revision similar to this item will be reviewed and a ballot will be issued by
Halloween, 2004.
[2/8/05] A handout was reviewed. A ballot is due by March 1, 2005.
[5/24/05] A ballot was issued 3/18/05 and was due to close 4/15/05. 12 negatives have been
received. This will be discussed in TG with the possibility of combining this item with item 02-
159 concerning slip-on and socket welded flanges. The primary objection seems to be historical
with the data supporting this item needing to be given to the voters. The negatives are being
addressed, most dealt with the zero gap. This item will only cover the gap and will be split with
new item to cover insertion depth on socket welded components other than flanges. The gap on
the socket weld flange will be covered however.
[9/20/05] A presentation was made to the PSP by G Frederick. A ballot will be issued by
Thanksgiving (2005) to deal with the gap requirement for socket welds. A proposal will be made
to modify Para 127.3(E) and to remove the 1/16 requirement in Fig. 127.4.4.
[2/7/06] The proposal will be revised to incorporate comments and a new ballot will be prepared
by Good Friday, 2006.
[5/23/06] An attempt to resolve the comments and negatives will be made in a new ballot. A
note reference will be added on the gap. New ballot by Fathers Day, 2006.
[9/19/06] The comments and negatives were discussed. A new ballot will be issued by
Thanksgiving, 2006, which will keep the figure similar to the present figures with a note
referencing the exception paragraph.
[1/23/07] Revised ballot submitted on 1/23/07.
[5/22/07] A discussion on the negatives was held and it was suggested that a brief explanation
of the need should be made. In addition, a correction to the notes reference is needed. A new
ballot is due by Memorial Day.

B31.1 2014, 136.4.5 Radiography. When required by this Chapter (see Table
136.4), radiographic examination shall be performed in accordance with Article 2 of
Section V of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. except that the
requirements of T-274 are to be used as a guide but not for the rejection of
radiographs unless the geometrical unsharpness exceeds 0.07 in. (2.0 mm).

B31.3 2014, 344.5 Radiographic Examination.


344.5.1 Method. Radiography of castings is covered in para. 302.3.3. Radiography
of welds and of components other than castings shall be performed in accordance
with BPV Code, Section V, Article 2.

ASME Section V
Article 2, T-274 T-274 GEOMETRIC UNSHARPNESS
T-274.1 Geometric Unsharpness Determination.
Geometric unsharpness of the radiograph shall be determined in accordance with:

where:

D = distance from source of radiation to weld or object being radiographed


d = distance from source side of weld or object being radiographed to the film
F = source size: the maximum projected dimension of the radiating source (or
effective focal spot) in the plane perpendicular to the distance D from the weld or
object being radiographed
Ug = geometric unsharpness
D and d shall be determined at the approximate center of the area of interest.
NOTE: Alternatively, a nomograph as shown in Standard Guide for
Radiographic Examination SE-94 may be used.

T-274.2 Geometric Unsharpness Limitations. Recommended maximum values


for geometric unsharpness are as follows:
Material Thickness, in. (mm) Ug Maximum, in. (mm)
Under 2 (50) 0.020 (0.51)
2 through 3 (5075) 0.030 (0.76)
0.040 (1.02)
Over 3 through 4 (75100)

Greater than 4 (100) 0.070 (1.78)

NOTE: Material thickness is the thickness on which the IQI is based.

Metrication of Appendix N
2016-01 Appendix N is written in 3 Chapters N-I, N-II and N-III with no regard to
metric values. N-I is Definitions, which have no conversions needed. N-III
is Materials, and there is one location where -20F is mentioned and (-29C)
can easily be added. N-II, Design, contains several tables and formulas in
Parts 1 - 2 in imperial units only. Parts 3 6 have metric conversions
(including table values) where needed. I suggest we send this back to the
subcommittee that wrote Appendix N for an update of Parts 1 and 2.

Metrication of Appendix VII
2016-01 This is a table and formula laden chapter that contains sample
