A method for quantifying pipe vibrations
A technique to quantify vibration forces can help prevent pipe failures due to vibration-induced fatigue
S. Saha, Reliance Refinery
Failures of piping due to vibration-induced fatigue are a serious problem in the chemical process industries (CPI) . Because flow-induced vibrations are complex, no closed-form design solutions are available. In this article, we present a method for quantifying vibration forcing functions for the optimal design of metal piping systems in the CPI, as well as an example of its use....
