API 571 Damage Mechanisms

With a technical basis in API RP 571 and WRC 489, Damage for the web is an invaluable reference guide for identifying and understanding the potential damage mechanisms that can cause costly fixed equipment failure. Similar to the desktop version, the heart of Damage for the web is the Solver. By selecting filter criteria (process unit, material, operating temperature, source and morphology), the Solver will quickly identify the possible damage mechanisms from the complete list defined in API 571, highlighting the most likely mechanisms for the selected criteria. The list of damage mechanisms is hyperlinked to the section of the 571 document pertaining to that mechanism. The document is presented in accordion format for mobile-friendly viewing and includes image links for appearance or morphology of damage.

A comprehensive Material look up reference tool for specifications, chemistry, hardness, fired heater limits, weld and pump materials is available. Process Flow Diagrams may be accessed from a pull down menu or from the Solver. Damage mechanisms shown on the PFDs are hyperlinked to the relevant 571 section. In addition to the calculators for sulfidation, H2S corrosion, and oxidation found in the desktop version, there are additional API 581-compatible susceptibility calculators for amine, sulfide stress, and caustic cracking.

Pipe Span Pressure Thickness

Calculations to determine the required thickness or MAWP (MAOP) of a pipe span are performed such that a user-specified maximum deflection and slope are not exceeded. Calculations are performed in accordance with the ASME B31.1, B31.3, B31.4 and B31.8 Piping Codes. A materials database for these codes is provided. Concentrated loads can be included and adjusted to model flange junctions, valves and the weight of a person. Distributed loads automatically included in the calculations are the weight of the pipe, insulation, and fluid contents. Longitudinal, circumferential and stress at the supports are computed in addition to pipe properties including metal cross-sectional area, section modulus, moment of inertia and weight. In the weight calculation, the additional weight due to insulation, refractory, and the fluid is accounted for. If refractory properties are input, a modified moment of inertia is computed to model the increase in stiffness due to the specified refractory thickness and its modulus of elasticity. Two options are provided:

  • Design Option – Determine the required thickness and recommended nominal thickness given the geometry, materials of construction, design pressure, design temperature and applied loadings.
  • In-Service Option – Determine the retirement thickness given the geometry, materials of construction, design pressure, design temperature and applied loadings.

Tank Settlement

The Tank Settlement WebTool is used to evaluate the effects of bottom settlement in above ground storage tanks per Annex B of API 653. Three types of settlement are available for analysis: shell settlement, edge settlement, and localized bottom settlement. Shell settlement is the sum of uniform and differential vertical displacement of the tank shell about a plane of rigid tilt, occurring around the circumference of the tank. Edge settlement is the vertical displacement of the tank bottom from the periphery of the tank shell. Localized bottom settlement is vertical displacement of a local region of the tank bottom away from the tank shell. By implementing procedures described in API 653 Annex B, the Tank Settlement WebTool can be used to determine the damage margin for each type of settlement.


Tank Shell Settlement

The Tank Shell Thickness WebTool can be used to evaluate above ground storage tanks considering sustained loading. Only the tank shell courses are included in the evaluation. The references for the analysis procedures currently implemented in the Tank Shell Thickness WebTool are listed below:
