How Does Your Pipe Stress Software Access ASME B31J i-Factors and k-Factors?

In the 2020 updates, both the ASME B31.1 Power Piping code and ASME B31.3 Process Piping code have mandated the use of ASME B31J, Stress Intensification Factors (i-Factors), Flexibility Factors (k-Factors) and their determination for Metallic Piping Components, removing the traditional Appendix D, Flexibility, and Stress Intensification Factors (SIF) from the codes.

Applying Occasional Static Loads in AutoPIPE

When you are working with piping models, you need an accurate pipeline design software to analyze proper occasional static loads. You can select from ALA (ASCE 2002), ASCE 2010, ASCE 2016, Chinese GB50011 – 2001, and Mexican CFE 2008 codes for static earthquake loads. Simply provide some inputs and then AutoPIPE will generate the seismic accelerations. Or you can create a user profile in which you can input the x, y, and z components of your earthquake loads, with seismic accelerations as a factor of g.
