## Fatigue life of pipe

(OP)

Hi Dear friends

We have pipe with outer diameter 62 mm and thikness of 2 mm. we made it by machinnig a thiker pipe with thikness of 5 mm. we machined both inner and outter face of thiker pipe. How we can test the new pipe fatigue life while it work in 120 C with 6 bar inner pressure?

Is there any standard test for estimating fatigue life of a pipe?

"Standard" vibration analysis and standard tables for standard pipe will NOT be accurate - and even be misleading! -

So the only accurate way is to take your metal to a vibration analysis lab - like SouthWest Research Institute in San Antonio TX and tell them to test it for your needed number of tens of thousands of cycles at your needed load at your needed deflection and time interval. Anything less is only guessing.

Machinning of inner surface and outer surface may reduce life time of tube?

it use as air duct and inner pressure in tube is 6 bar, Is vibration analysis help us determining life time of tube under inner pressure?

and to what it is attached,

and how stiff both ends are,

plus the actual (expected) vibration environment that the assembly will be subjected to ...

The combination of everything is going to determine the lifetime of everything. If you decide to accept the recommended solution and test the tube, then you need to test the whole assembly, not just the tube all by itself.

If your forcing frequency is well below the natural frequencies of the tube, you can use the high and low stress states to determine the fatigue life. Usually, you'll use something like a signed von Mises stress to calculate the mean stress and the stress ratio. You'll then have to find a fatigue curve for the material that you're using (at the proper temperature). The ASM Atlas of Fatigue Curves might be a good place to start.

Our concern about this pipe is that we machinned inner and outter surface of it and now we dont know how to test it and according to wich standard. I study APPENDIXW3-25-09 and DNV-RP-C203 but I did not find method for testing fatigue life of tube or pipe. If it is possible tell me the standard that explain procedure for fatigue testing of tube.
