ASME VIII (Div2, 2010)
ASME VIII (Div2, 2010) - provides rules for the construction of boilers, pressure vessels, and nuclear components. Chapters 3.F.1 Smooth Bar Design Fatigue Curves and 5.5.3 Fatigue Assessment - Elastic Stress Analysis and Equivalent Stresses are implemented.
To add the Standard executefrom the main ribbon:
Press to Set Standard Custom Settings
Material Type - used to determine Fatigue Penalty Factors in Table 5.13;
Average Allowable Stress due to Temperature - used in calculations of allowable limit on the primary plus secondary stress range (220.127.116.11.d);
Modulus of Elasticity - used to establish the design fatigue curve. Used if formula (3.F.3);
Tangent Modulus of Elasticity - evaluated at the temperature of interest. Used if formula (3.F.3);
Weld and Surface Conditions - used to determine Weld Surface Fatigue-Strength-Reduction Factor from Table 5.11;
Quality Level - used to determine Weld Surface Fatigue-Strength-Reduction Factor from Table 5.11. See Table 5.12 for details;
User Defined Kev (Fatigue Penalty Factor) - set Fatigue Penalty Factor manually;
Calculate Kev based on Spk (conservative) - calculate Fatigue Penalty Factor by formulas 5.31-5.33;
Yield and Tensile
Standard uses material data (Yield/Tensile) in calculations. Wizard checks if the values are defined for all materials.
