Question

A horizontal vessel has an outside diameter of 10‟. The material‟s allowable stress is 14,000 psi. The MAWP of the vessel is 120 psig. The welds are Type-1 and Full-RT was performed. Determine the minimum required thickness.

Answer #1

**Solution :**

Given data

- allowable sress = 14000 psi
- MAWP (Maximum allowable working pressure) = 120 psig = 120 + 14.7 psia = 134.7 psia
- Outside diameter = 10 inch = 10 * 2.54 = 25.4 cm
- Joint effciency factor = 1 (for full radiograph test and type- 1)
- Design pressure = 10 % more than MAWP = 1.10 * 134.7 = 148.17 psia

Now, We use lame's theorm for finding thickness,

Where tr = thickness of vessel ( Corrosion allwance not considered)

P = design pressure

D0 = outer Diameter of vessel

f = allwable stress

J = joint effcienct factor

Put all values in above equation,

**tr = 0.1337 cm = 1.337 mm**

We take 2 mm as a corrosion allowance.

T = 1.337 + 2 = **3.337 mm**

**This is minimum required thickness.**

A vertical vessel has an internal radius of 48”. The material's
allowable stress is 12,000 psi. The MAWP of the vessel is 120 psig.
The welds are “double welded” and the nameplate mentions spot
radiography. The top of this shell section is 4„ from the top of
the vessel, and the bottom of this shell section is 52‟ from the
top of the vessel. Determine the required thickness.

A cylindrical pressure vessel that is used for chemical
processing is routinely pressurized to 26 MN m-2 . The vessel has a
mean diameter of 1.6 m and a wall thickness of 0.095 m, and is
constructed from welded plates of material with a UTS of 565 MN m-2
and a yield strength of 460 MN m-2

There is a design methodology called rapid prototyping,
which has been used successfully in software engineering.
Given similarities between software design and instructional
design, we argue that rapid prototyping is a viable method for
instructional design, especially for computer-based
instruction.

1) A nozzle is a device for increasing the velocity of a
steadily flowing stream of fluid. At the inlet to a certain nozzle
the enthalpy of the fluid is 3025 kJ/kg and the velocity is 60 m/s.
At the exit from the nozzle the enthalpy is 2790 kJ/kg. The nozzle
is horizontal and there is negligible heat loss from
it.

Fancy Millwork has a factory that produces custom kitchen
cabinets. It has multiple product lines. Materials and labor for
the cabinets are determined by each job. To simplify the
assignment, we will assume the following average costs. The company
estimates that it will have 32,000 direct labor hours in total for
the kitchen cabinets. The materials include $2,000 for the wood and
other materials on a per job basis. It requires 40 hours of labor
