Examples of primary stress are the membrane stress in a rod loaded by an axial force and the bending stress in a simple beam.

For assistance or to subscribe, please contact us:. The weight of a riser coupling zpec include the sum of the in-air weights of the structural components of the coupling, the lock mechanisms, and the brackets or clamps that support the end extremities of auxiliary and choke and kill lines.

For those couplings with a non-linear relationship between load and stress, linear interpolations or extrapolations cannot be used. No relevant indication with a major dimension equal to or greater than 3?

API Spec 16R (R)

To qualify for sprc particular rated load, neither calculated nor 16rr stresses in a coupling shall exceed the allowable stress limits of the coupling material when subjected to the rated load. Some stresses will be affected by the structural properties of the riser pipe. For assistance or to subscribe, please contact us: Performance and Mechanical Equipment Standards.

Both X-ray and gamma ray radiation sources are acceptable 166r the inherent thickness range limitation of each. For example, when the general primary membrane stress is being checked only general primary membrane stresses are included in Equation 2; secondary stresses, bending stress and local primary membrane stresses are not included. This situation presents a real challenge for the design of the drilling riser which depends to a large extent on these parameters, as well as other related to operational and environmental conditions.


For example, a coupling having six planes of symmetry would require analysis of a degree sector one-twelfth. Requests for permission to reproduce or translate all or any part of the material published herein should also be addressed to the director. For load-carrying bolts in bolted-?

Dependability Engineering in System Design and Realization. Equal to the local sprc alternating stress in a component including welds divided by the nominal alternating stress in the pipe wall at the location of the component.

This stress is necessary only to insure the coupling has continuity of deformations at the discontinuity; thus, it is a secondary stress.

This is graphically shown in Figure C Acceptance criteria for pressure contact metal-to-metal sealing surfaces speci? Local peak stresses are not considered for static loading, but are of primary concern for evaluating fatigue life as discussed in 4. Examples of these lines include a control system? This specification relates directly to API 16Q, which covers the design, selection, and operation of the marine drilling riser system as a whole.

A primary stress is one that apk induced by the external loads or preload and is necessary to satisfy the laws of static equilibrium. The hardness of sprc QTC shall meet the manufacturer’s written speci?
