AutoPipe Stress Analysis, When to apply ASME B31.3 Appendix P?

AutoPipe Stress Analysis, When to apply ASME B31.3 Appendix P?


Can anybody who is familiar with AutoPipe analysis provide me with some assistance.

When is it appropraite to apply ASME B31.3  appendix P to the pipe stress analysis.

I am finding that I am getting radically different results when the Appendix P option is active.

When stress is to be calculated considering thermal expansion combined with other case loads.

See this doc for more info,

We will design everything from now on using only S.I. units ... except for the pipe diameter.  Unk. British engineer
