Stress Analysis of Process Piping Systems with Grooved Pipe Coupling Joint

Authors(3) :-Ashutosh Punyani, Mitheshwar R. Thombre, VD Bharani

The use of an alternative coupled pipe systems are becoming much more widely used in the petrochemical industries because of their comparatively cheap installation costs, their ability to install complete systems very quickly, reduction in overall weight of the system and the flexibility they offer in terms of alterations and disassembly/reassembly all without welding, as compared to traditional pipe joining processes. The use of an alternative coupled pipe system to that of the more traditional welded/socket welded or threaded system for any project is a critical decision that has to be considered and implemented as practicably as possible. This paper will discuss the utilities of the joining system, the types of clamps and grooves used in piping system, procedure for stress analysis of systems carrying grooved pipe coupling joint, and its advantages over conventional joining processes.
