It is applicable to all pipelines and piping systems within the scope of: ASME B 4 – Pipeline Transportation Systems for Liquid. Hydrocarbons and Other. ASME B31G – Level 2 Option, otherwise known as RSTRENG is most commonly used in the pipeline industry. However, ASME B31G Level 2 that is based on. Integration with NDT tools. ▫ 3D surface measurements. ▫ UT. ▫ What’s next? ▫ Pit gage data entry interface. ▫ ASME B31G (), DNV RP-F

When evaluating anomalies identified by inline inspection, use of larger factors of safety will result in smaller flaws being left in service following field investigation and pipeline repairs. B31v Thickness Fabrication Allowance tm: Bodenhamer, Enterprise Products Co.
If spaced sufficiently closely, the metal loss areas may interact so as to result in failure at a lower pressure than would be expected based on an analysis of the separate flaws. The methods and criteria provided herein do not address failure by perforation.
PIPELINE CORROSION ASSESSMENT – ASME B31G COMPLIANCE
This can increase the reassessment interval to the next inline inspection. Please fill this form, we will try to respond as soon as possible.
Determine pipe diameter and nominal wall thickness from appropriate records or direct measurement of the pipe. When calculating the failure stress SFis t the corroded pipe wall thickness?
Further references may be found in other documents available in the public domain. Rangus, Ex-Officio, Bechtel J. It is noted that Sflow was defined as 1.
Nominal Inside Diameter Aeme Wall Thickness Fabrication Tolerance Type tfu: If the exact measured value is not listed, choose the row showing the next greater depth.
Not all methods give identical numerical results or consistent degrees of conservatism. These tables are carried over without change from earlier editions of ASME B31G and have been supplemented by the addition of b331g in metric units.

Pipe Outside Circumference OD: A Level 2 evaluation may be suitable for use in prioritizing metal-loss anomalies identified by high-resolution inline inspection. They provide a ready reference of maximum corrosion lengths for a range of pipe sizes and depths of corrosion.
Paulin, Paulin Research Group R. Wall Thickness Corrosion Allowance ttoltype: They were calculated from the equations for a Level 1 evaluation in accordance with the original B31G methodology.

Please copy and paste this embed script to where you want to embed Embed Script. If the helical pattern lies at an angle of 45 deg or greater to the pipe axis, it is sufficient to consider the most severe longitudinal section through the corroded area having a length L2 in Fig. Depth, d, mm The B31 Standards Committee regularly holds meetings, which are open to the public.
The Effective Area Method is expressed as follows: The metal loss area on the pipe is acceptable if its measured length, L, does not exceed the value of L given in the table. The flow stress can be calculated as either 1.
It is intended that a Level 0 evaluation be conducted in the field without the need for performing detailed calculations. It typically relies on detailed measurements of the corroded surface profile, accounting for the actual distribution of metal loss, and involves repetitive computations that may be facilitated by the use of computer software or spreadsheets.
Determine applicable pipe material properties from appropriate records. Clean the corroded pipe surface to bare metal. This definition remains an inherent element of the Level 0 assessment and is recommended with the Level 1 assessment performed in accordance with para.
