Pipeline Design & Stress Analysis (Gas) User Guide
Study time: 2 hours
The Pipeline Toolbox is home to many tools and calculators. The PLTB User’s Guide presents information, guidelines and procedures for use during design, construction, operations and integrity tasks for field or office applications.
The Steel Pipeline Design & Stress Analysis module is intended to provide adequate analysis for public safety under all conditions encountered in the gas industry. Conditions that may cause additional stress in any part of a line or its appurtenances shall be provided for, using good engineering practice. Examples of such conditions include long self-supported spans, unstable ground, mechanical or sonic vibration, weight of special attachments, outside induced stresses, stresses caused by temperature differences, and the soil and temperature conditions.
