Technical basis for application of collapse moments for locally thinned pipes subjected to torsion and bending proposed for ASME Section XI

Hasegawa, Kunio*; Li, Y. ; Bezensek, B.*; Hoang, P. H.*; Rathbun, H. J.*

Piping components in power plants may experience combined bending and torsion moments during operation. There is a lack of guidance for pipe evaluation for pipes with local wall thinning flaws under the combined bending and torsion moments. ASME BPV Code Section XI Working Group is currently developing fully plastic bending pipe evaluation procedures for pressurized piping components containing local wall thinning subjected to combined torsion and bending moments. Using elastic fully plastic finite element analyses, plastic collapse bending moments under torsions were obtained for 4 to 24 inch diameter pipes with various local wall thinning flaw sizes. The objective of this paper is to introduce an equivalent moment, which combines torsion and bending moments by a vector summation, and to establish the applicable range of wall thinning lengths, angles and depths, where the equivalent moments are equal to pure bending moments.
