Proposed New Guidelines for ASME B31.8 on Assessment of Dents and Mechanical Damage

This report defines damage terms and summarizes the research on dents and mechanical damage. Having identified the likely failure modes of various forms of dents and mechanical damage, appropriate criteria for acceptance or repair of such features are proposed. Specific proposed revisions to the text of ASME B31.8 are presented, in two formats. Document synopses of 55 reference documents are also included in the report.

Summary:
The data and knowledge base to make well-informed decisions regarding treatment of deformation damage in pipelines exists among experienced personnel in the industry, but these is no single document guiding an operator on this matter. ASME B31.8 would be an appropriate document. It is a safety code governing all phases of the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of gas transmission and distribution piping and pipeline systems. This integrity maintenance document served as the basis for the minimum Federal safety standards embodied in 49 CFR 192. ASME B31.8 contains provisions for the field acceptance or repair of dents, gouges, and combined defects consisting of dents with other stress raisers such as gouges, arc burns, or wells. However, the provisions are not sufficiently complete, detailed, or consistent with current technology to provide an appropriate degree of guidance. This report defines damage terms and summarizes the research on dents and mechanical damage. Having identified the likely failure modes of various forms of dents and mechanical damage, appropriate criteria for acceptance or repair of such features are proposed. Specific proposed revisions to the text of ASME B31.8 are presented, in two formats. Document synopses of 55 reference documents are also included in the report.
