Pipe stress calculation – pipe statics
Pipe stress analysis guarantees that piping is not stressed beyond permissible limits by loads from operation and external influences. It also provides the required design parameters for pipe suspensions and the forces and deformations caused by interfaces and pipe sockets.
We conduct the required pipe stress analysis and provide you with suitable alternatives if a given piping layout does not work, i.e. would lead to overloading. Pipe stress analysis is conducted in accordance with standards. The most well-known are:
- ASME B31.1 and B31.3
The use of standard calculation software guarantees that all the relevant factors involved are taken into account logically and in compliance with regulations.
