Assessment of flaw interaction under combined tensile and bending stresses; Suitability of ASME code case N877-1

Dulieu, P.*; Lacroix, V.*; Hasegawa, Kunio

Proceedings of ASME 2020 Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2020) (Internet), 7 Pages, 2020/08

When detected flaws are in close proximity, proximity rules given in the Fitness-foe Service codes require to combine the interacting flaws into a single flaw. ASME Code Case N877-1 provides alternative proximity rules for multiple radial oriented planar flaws. The calculations of flaw interaction have been performed under pure membrane stress. However, actual loading conditions induce non-uniform stresses in the component thickness direction. The objective of this paper is assess the suitability of ASME Code Case N877-1 with regards to the presence of a bending part in the applied stress distribution. For that purpose, various applied stress profiles and flaw configurations are covered. The effect on flaw interaction is assessed trough three-dimensional XFEM analyses.

Treatment of the interaction with the free surface of the component for combined subsurface flaws; Technical basis for revision of IWA-3300 and Table IWB/IWC-3510-1

Lacroix, V.*; Dulieu, P.*; Hasegawa, Kunio; Mares, V.*

Proceedings of ASME 2020 Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2020) (Internet), 8 Pages, 2020/08

When flaws are detected in pressure retaining components, a flaw characterization has to be carried out in order to determine unequivocally the flaw geometry. This flaw characterization is done according to rules provided in the FFS codes. The first step of the flaw characterization addresses the interaction of the flaw and the free surface. The second step of the flaw characterization addresses the interaction of the flaw with the adjacent flaws. In the ASME Code Sec. XI, there is a lack on how to treat the interaction of a combined flaw and the free surface of the component. The ASME Code Sec. XI flaw characterization is not clear. Some typical examples of unrealistic flaw assessment rules are depicted in this paper. The paper is used as technical basis for improvement of the ASME Code in order to clarify the treatment of combined flaw in the flaw characterization (IWA-3300, IWB/IWC-3510-1)

Introduction of subsurface proximity criteria in the world and stress intensity factors for transformed surface flaws

Hasegawa, Kunio; Li, Y.; Katsumata, Genshichiro*; Dulieu, P.*; Lacroix, V.*

Proceedings of 2017 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2017) (CD-ROM), 6 Pages, 2017/07

Net-section stress at the ligament between component free surface and subsurface flaw increases when the ligament distance is short. It can be easily expected that stress intensity factors increase when the subsurface flaw locates near the free surface. To avoid catastrophic failures caused by ligament failure, fitness-for-service (FFS) codes provide flaw-to-surface proximity rules. The proximity rules are used to determine whether the flaws should be treated as subsurface flaws as-is, or transformed to surface flaws. The stress intensity factor for the transformed surface flaw increases furthermore. The increment of the stress intensity factor before and after transformation depends on the location of the subsurface flaw. Although the concept of the proximity rules are the same, the specific criteria for the rules on transforming subsurface flaws to surface flaws differ amongst FFS codes. Particularly, the criteria are different amongst the same organizations of ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers). The proximity criteria of the FFS codes in the world were introduced in this paper. In addition, the stress intensity factors based on the different criteria used in the ASME Codes are compared.

Stress intensity factor interaction of subsurface flaws under notches

Hasegawa, Kunio; Dulieu, P.*; Lacroix, V.*

Proceedings of 2017 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2017) (CD-ROM), 5 Pages, 2017/07

The stress intensity factors of the subsurface flaws are affected by the stress concentrations caused by the notches. The interaction of stress intensity factor increases with increasing stress concentration factor and decreasing the ligament distance between the tips of the subsurface flaws and the notches for a given notch width. Such subsurface flaws shall be transformed to surface flaws at far distance of the notch tips for conservative evaluations. This paper shows the interactions of stress intensity factors of subsurface flaws under stress concentration fields. Based on the interaction, a flaw-to-surface proximity criterion for a circular flaw is proposed under the stress concentration field induced by a notch.
