The focus of the one-day master class is to provide an understanding of the fatigue methods found in Part 5 of ASME Section VIII, Division 2 and the new Part 14 of API 579-1/FFS-1, and to convey practical information on how to perform analysis, including the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA).  Discussion on the background of the analysis methods and their application are presented through the ASME Pressure Technology Bulletins, PTB-1-2013 Section VIII – Division 2 Criteria and Commentary and PTB-3-2013 Section VIII – Division 2 Example Problem Manual.

The attendees gain an appreciation of how these analytical techniques can be applied to practical design situations.  The class includes detailed example problems that demonstrate how the analytical techniques are to be applied, and their limitations.  The fatigue analysis approaches using smooth bar and welded joint technology using the new structural stress approach are covered in detail, including case histories to highlight the application to common Industry problems.  Detailed FEA models will be presented to help illustrate the various analytical techniques.

You Will Learn To

  • Explain the fundamentals of fatigue and the implementation of fatigue design and assessment methods in ASME Section VIII, Division 2 and API 579-1/FFS-1
  • Evaluate the technical basis for smooth bar and welded fatigue methodologies
  • Apply the fatigue analysis techniques to practical Industry problems
