cycles to failure when using uniform loading and including all

the structural modes. The cycles of failure are calculated at 1σ,

2σ, 3σ, and 4σ. Even though the uniform loading amplitude is

5psi, 10 times of the maximum amplitude of correlated loading,

the predicted SRSS stress values are much smaller than that of

the correlated loading case in Table 2(b). The stress ratios for

uniform loading are inconsistent when pipe wall thickness

changes, while they remain stable for correlated loading case in

Table 2(b), which indicates that a separate SIF/FSRF

investigation is needed. In general, the fatigue life of the piping

structure under AIV excitation is dominantly determined by

correlated loading, which is applied in the following results.

Under the correlated loading excitation and including all

the structural mode shapes, Table 2(b) shows the fatigue

analysis results. Sch. 10S pipe has larger stress values and thus

shorter cycles are predicted than Sch. STD pipe. For different

connection types, the stress ratios remain stable as D/t changes

indicating that ranking of the connections would be reasonable:

i.e., RT provides greater fatigue resistance than SW which are

more resistant than WL (see Fig. 9(a) for the stress ratios

normalized to Sch. STD RT), but various studies on D/d and

D/t are still required.
