Quick Check on Piping Flexibility

Posted by Antony Thomas at Friday, September 16, 2011

Quick Check on Piping Flexibility

L. C. Peng, PE
Peng Engineering, Houston, Texas

One major requirement in piping design is to provide adequate flexibility
for absorbing the thermal expansion of the pipe. However,
due to lack of quick method of checking, piping are often laid-out
to be either too stiff or too flexible. In either case, valuable
time and material are wasted. This paper presents some of the quick
methods for checking piping flexibility. These methods include
visual, hand calculation, and micro computer approaches. They are
all quick and easy for designers to use in planning their layouts.
Once the designers have taken care of the flexibility problem, the
iterative procedure between the stress engineers and the designers
become simpler. The project schedule can also be improved.

PIPING FLEXIBILITY


As the pipe temperature changes from the installation condition to
the operating condition, it expands or contracts. In the general
term, both expansion and contraction are called thermal expansion.
When a pipe expands it has the potential of generating enormous
force and stress in the system. However, if the piping is flexible
enough, the expansion can be absorbed without creating undue force
or stress. Providing the proper flexibility is one of the major
tasks in the design of piping system.
Piping is used to convey a certain amount of fluid from one
point to another. It is obvious that the shorter the pipe is used
the lesser the capital expenditure is required. The long pipe may
also generate excessive pressure drop making it unsuitable for the
proper operation. However, the direct shortest layout generally is
not acceptable for absorbing the thermal expansion.

Piping Flexiblility Calculation Piping Flexiblility study, Piping Flexiblity calculation, expansion loop, piping hand calculation, Thermal expansion loop.

PDS Rules for Better Living

Posted by Antony Thomas at Wednesday, September 07, 2011

PDS Rules for Better Living


The following information is designed as a reminder to become familiarized with the PDS command environment..

1. ALWAYS READ THE PROMPTS:

Accept/Reject prompt MEANS Use the data button in the view, not in the form, to accept the current choice or reject current choice with a reset button in the view.

Accept Or .... MEANS Use the “green check mark” to confirm or accept the current choice or Red ‘X’ to reject current choice.

2. CONNECT TO EQUIPMENT:

Tentative to nozzle with the tentative mouse button until the nozzle connect point highlights then use the data button on the mouse.

You can also connect to an equipment nozzle using a data button. You may need to select the reset on mouse until the correct connect point highlights, then accept this choice with a data button in the view. This is called a boresite location in the Intergraph PDS Reference Guides.

Note: To successfully connect to an equipment nozzle in piping, the equipment reference model must have the display, snap, and locate features active. To determine this, select the Reference model option on the File options palette and highlight the reference model from the list. Verify the display, snap and locate features are on.

3. CONNECT TO COMPONENTS:

Always connect to components with a Data on the mouse, select the reject on the mouse button in the view until the correct connect point highlights, then accept with a data on the mouse. Read the prompt for correct connect point information.

4. CONNECT TO SEGMENTS:

Tentative on the segments until the correct segment highlights and accept with a data on the mouse button. Read the prompt for correct connect point information.

MOVE TO EASTING ----- ABSOLUTE COORDINATE MOVE

MOVE EAST ----- DELTA MOVE RELATIVE TO CURRENT LOCATION

ALWAYS VERIFY AND SET ACTIVE SEGMENT PARAMETERS IMMEDIATELY AFTER CONNECTING TO DESIGN FOR PIPING AND EQUIPMENT.

PDS PIPING COMMANDS

Posted by Antony Thomas at

PDS PIPING COMMANDS


The Placement commands enable you to place pipe, piping components, pipe supports, and


instrument components. You can also place assemblies (predefined sets of components).

The Revision commands enable you to move, delete, and rotate existing piping. You can

revise individual components, piping segments, or all of the elements on a pipeline or defined

by a group operation.

These commands enable you to review or revise the model data stored in the Design Database

and Project Control Database. The data associated with each model is collectively referred to

as the Task Database. The Task Database is a working copy of the design data for a project

which corresponds to a design volume within the plant.

Each component in a piping model is linked to a database record which contains non-graphic

information about the component. When a component or segment is placed in the model, the

system creates a row in the appropriate database table.

The Review Revise and Analyze commands enable you to review or revise the model data

stored in the Design Database and Project Control Database. The data associated with each

model is collectively referred to as the Task Database. The Task Database is a working copy

of the design data for a project which corresponds to a design volume within the plant.

Each component in a piping model is linked to a database record which contains non-graphic

information about the component. When a component or segment is placed in the model, the

system creates a row in the appropriate database table.

Command Groups


Placement Commands Places pipe, piping components, pipe supports, and instrument

components. You can also place assemblies (predefined sets of components).

Revise Component Commands Revises/appends different positional and/or task

database information on PDS piping components. Any rotation, addition, or

reconstruction of PDS piping components must be done through these commands and

not through MicroStation manipulations due to the interdependence of graphic and

database information.

Revise Segment Commands Revises piping segments in the active model. The

commands perform both graphical and task database revisions. You cannot use

MicroStation commands to change piping segments as they will not update the user

data associated with the piping segment.

Revise Group Commands Moves, deletes, rotates, and reconstructs existing piping.

You can revise a pipeline of those elements defined by an active group.

Revise Data Commands Revises information in the Design Database and defines


additional information for components. You can only revise information for items in

the active model.

Review Data Commands Reviews information in the Design Database or reviews

existing report files. You can only view the information you cannot make any changes.

Analyze Data Commands Reviews information related to the model analysis

operations. You can also check for interferences within the active model file.


Placement Commands


These commands enable you to place pipe, piping components, pipe supports, and instrument

components. You can also place assemblies (predefined sets of components).

A combination of Sketch, Place Component, Automated Placement, Place Pipe Support,

and the Copy Commands is normally used to model a complete pipeline.


Commands


Using the Placement Commands — Outlines the prerequisites, group workflow, and basic

instructions for using the Placement commands.

Place Component — Manually places components (such as valves or fittings),

piping, instruments, or assemblies.

Sketch — Defines the centerline geometry for a pipeline and define the attributes of

the piping segment.

Automated Placement — Places items such as pipes, elbows, reducers, branch

components, and flanges on the piping segment according to the attributes and the

geometry of the segment.

Add Chain Wheel — Modifies the operator on an existing valve component.

Add to Valve — Modifies the operator on an existing valve component.

Tap Component —Adds a tap to an existing component.

Place Pipe Support — Places physical pipe supports.

Place Logical Support — Places logical pipe supports.

Copy Pipe Support — Copies existing pipe supports.

Copy Piping — Creates graphics by copying existing components in the model.

Copy and Mirror Piping — Creates graphics by copying and mirroring existing

components.

Copy and Rotate Piping — Creates graphics by copying and rotating existing

components.

Construct — Places non-intelligent graphics in the model for use as construction aids.
