During piping stress analysis of a piping system, it sometimes seems that there is no major difference between ASME B31.3 and ASME B31.1. As simply changing the codes in the input spreadsheet is sufficient for analysis. But if we take a closer look at both B31.3 vs B31.1, we can understand that there are some major differences in the rules, applications, and guideline considerations between ASME B31.1 and ASME B31.3. In this article, we have listed down some major differences
The piping industry today is very diverse in its use of computer-aided design. This diversity is shown by the various levels of sophistication of the CAD applications in use by different segments of the industry. Even within the same company, the sophistication of CAD use can vary widely from discipline to discipline, department to department. This diversity ranges from a surprisingly large portion of the industry in which there is little use of CAD to a few who claim to be a
The power industry, through its many years of experience, has found that piping arrangements and layout can inﬂuence the functionality of a piping system. This section will present speciﬁc system guidelines and considerations that will enable the piping designer to minimize that inﬂuence. Main Steam and Hot, Cold Reheat In any power plant, be it a base-loaded electric power generation station or an industrial facility power plant, the main steam system is the backbone of the
These codes and standards were written to establish minimum requirements for safe design and construction with very little reference to the physical routing of piping. However, the piping designer should be familiar with them as they apply to his or her work. There are a few speciﬁc references to physical piping design of safety relief valve arrangements: The ASME Boiler and Pressure Code, Section I, Power Boilers, speciﬁes that there is to be no intervening pipe, valves, or
