PRCI WEBINAR (RECORDING): Development of Sleeve End Fillet Weld Stress Intensity Factor Calculator

Thu, September 05, 2019

WEBINAR RUNTIME: 47 minutes. Click the registration button below to access a recording of this webinar.

PRCI invites you to join the Design, Materials & Construction Technical Committee as they demonstrate a software tool designed to simplify the calculation of Stress Intensity Factors (SIFs) for sleeve end fillet welds.

Expected Benefits/Learning Outcomes:

  • Attendees will be given an overview of the sleeve end fillet weld stress intensity factors (SIFs) software, which provides a simplified means of estimating the SIFs for a single scenario or for an unlimited number of scenarios defined using a standard batch file format;
  • the presentation will also include the results of a sensitivity study illustrating the general trends in terms of the SIFs versus the range of inputs used to define an assessment scenario;
  • and the use of the SIFs in a standard integrity assessment (engineering critical assessment of fitness-for-service assessment) will also be demonstrated.


Who Should Attend?

  • Pipeline design engineers
  • Welding specialists and engineers
  • Integrity management personnel
