May 21, 2012 · This paper discusses the margins of the design fatigue curve in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes Section III from a reliability analysis point of view. It is reported that these margins were developed so as to cover uncertainties of fatigue data scatter, size effect, and surface condition, but the reasons for them remain unclear. Fatigue Design of Process EqqpuipmentDesign Margins for Fatigue Methods Fatigue charts are typically derived from experimental data. Design curves are derived by applying fixed design margins or using a statistical basisusing a statistical basis. Code Method Margin ASME VIII-2 Notch Stress 2 on stress, 20 on cycles Structural Stress User Defined (-3*Std Dev recommended) BS-5500 Fatigue Margins for Austenitic Stainless Steels in ASME margins in the ASME code. Need for further research Research is needed to investigate the fatigue margins for austenitic stain-less steel components and compare it with the fatigue design curves in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. An experimental study on fatigue loaded components made of austenitic stainless steel should be performed.
Two methods for incorporating environmental effects into the ASME Code fatigue evaluations are discussed. Data available in the literature have been reviewed to evaluate the conservatism in the Proposed New Fatigue Design Curves for Austenitic The current fatigue design curve for austenitic stainless steels in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code is known to be unconservative in certain fatigue regimes. This design curve was based on data which included cold worked material, and it allows cyclic stresses which are too high to satisfy code safety margins for annealed materials in Proposed New Fatigue Design Curves for Carbon and - Jan 27, 2009 · The ASME Code Subgroup on Fatigue Strength has been working for 20 years on the development of new fatigue design methods and curves to account for high temperature water environmental effects. This paper presents an overview of the data and analyses used to formulate proposed new environmental fatigue design curves, which maintain the same safety margins as
This paper also presents a critical review of the ASME Code fatigue design margins of 2 on stress (or strain) and 20 on life and assesses the possible conservatism in the current choice of designReview of the Margins for ASME Code Fatigue Design Review of the Margins for ASME Code Fatigue Design Curve - Effects of Surface Roughness and Material Variability by O. K. Chopra and W. J. Shack Abstract The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code provides rules for the construction of nuclear power plant components. The Code specifies fatigue design curves for structural materials.
