Pipe Vibration Assessment

Project Description

  • The client retained Earth Fire Energy to complete a pipe stress and  vibration assessment 
  • The pipe vibration was causing nozzle cracking on a reactor discharge pipe



  • Site visit to observe vibration and confirm existing piping system, including dimensions and pipe support configuration
  • Reviewed historical operating conditions as provided by the client
  • Prepared a model using Caesar II Software to analyze pipe stress and estimate the modal natural frequencies for the existing pipe routing
  • Provided client with a final report including our observations, analysis, and recommendations to ensure peak stresses were within allowable code stresses (ASME B31.3)
