Long Seam

## El - long seam efficiency (circ stress)

Ec - circ seam efficiency (long stress)
UTP [%] - undertolerance allowance
P [psi] - interior pressure

Calculated Properties:
Volume [cuft] = ((Do/2-t)^2)*pi()*L/1728
Weight [lb] = (Do-t)*pi()*L*t*40.84/144

((24/2-0.25)^2)*PI()*12/1728 = 3.01
(24-0.25)*PI()*12*0.25*40.84/144 = 63.48

Variables:
UT [in] = t*UTP
nt [in] = t-Corr-UT
Ri [in] = Do/2-nt

0.25*0.1 = 0.031
0.25-0.01-0.031 = 0.209
24/2-0.209 = 11.791

## Required Thickness: UG-27(c)(1,2)

ta [in] = P*Ri/(S*El-0.6*P) ~~ long sem
50*11.791/(20000*0.85-0.6*50) =
tb [in] = P*Ri/(2*S*Ec+0.4*P) ~~ circ seam
50*11.791/(2*20000*0.7+0.4*50) =
Treq [in] = MAX(ta,tb)+Corr ~~ required minimum thickness
MAX(0.035,0.021)+0.01 =
CheckTreq = Treq <= nt
0.045 <= 0.209 =

0.035
0.021
0.045
Acceptable

## Maximum Pressure: UG-27(c)(1,2)

Pint1 [psi] = (S*El*nt)/(Ri+0.6*nt)
(20000*0.85*0.209)/(11.791+0.6*0.209) =
Pint2 [psi] = (2*S*Ec*nt)/(Ri-0.4*nt)
(2*20000*0.7*0.209)/(11.791-0.4*0.209) =
PMax [psi] = Min(Pint1,Pint2) ~~ maximum allowed design pressure
MIN(298,499) =
CheckP = PMax >= P
297.8 >= 50 =

298
499
297.8
Acceptable

Treq provides a worst case required thickness for nozzle analysis for a nozzle located on the long seam or circ seam
This sheet will not calculate thick walled vessels
Check Not a thick walled vessel, calculations are valid
The UG-16(b) minimum thickness requirement has not been taken into consideration here.
This sheet cannot be used to check for allowable exterior pressure loads.
Use the Weld Efficiency program to calculate El and Ec
