Jump to new posts Re: thrust load on Expansion joint by Michael_Fletcher @ Today at 12:27 PM

Here's an analogy: Take a vertical pipe in CAESAR. Anchor at the bottom, free at the top. Apply a horizontal displacement at the top node of L. Run and calculate the model. You have a force and a displacement, therefore, you have a stiffness of F/L.

You may need to reach out to the piping manufacturer for guidance, which they may be prepared to not deliver to you an answer. If such is the case, it should be on you to "strongly recommend" to not circumvent engineered components as it encumbers y

Hello Richard , Thank you for your reply I did some modification to keep the stress within allowable in max case but you can easily notice that the stress in this case is much higher than other cases. I notice that it take the lowest allowable stress

I suggest providing something that we can look at. But here are two stabs in the dark. If a pipe span has sufficient sag, it will draw the ends, though I'm given to understand CAESAR does not consider this case. If a pipe is able to rotate about a

The expansion joint element, in CAESAR II, is weightless. I suggest you apply added assembly weight to the (rigid) elements on either end of the joint.

Hi Richard, Thanks for your response. I had read the mentioned paragraphs Still I am confused whether paragraph 12.3.4 speaks about operating stress or liberal expansion stress for sigma4 stresses. Can you please through some light on this?
Jump to new posts CAESAR Pet Tricks by Michael_Fletcher @ 01/15/19 09:32 AM

To be honest, I don't like the kind of windows dialogue box uses when creating a "new" CAESAR file. It's inconvenient to me as all our network servers are not conventionally named in easily memorable manners. In lieu of this, I create a new text fil

At least the "g" factor has pretty simple equations to check; I've made a quick Excel sheet that matches Caesar's output to confirm. I think Caesar does a good job of being up front about what it does and how it does it. If you want to really peak b

Not that I know of. But I think the lists would serve this purpose well, e.g., Show all SIFs.
This problem has been addressed with the rewrite in Version 11 (2019) which just entered Beta Testing.
thank you Richard. SR sent with some simple improvement suggestions.

Trainee, Thank you for the information. It seems our database has incorrect values for that material and piping code. I have filed this in our development backlog. For now, you should use the code specified value.
