Hi this is my question:
what's the meaning of "The CET for systems constructed to ASME B31.3 is defined as the lowest metal temperature at which a component will be subject to either 30 percent of the maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) at ambient temperature or a combined total longitudinal stress due to pressure, weight effects, and displacement strains that do not exceed 55.2 MPa (8 ksi). The CET for piping is determined from the anticipated process and atmospheric conditions."?

How do you define the CET of a CS line of liquified BUTANE?

What does the acronym CET stand for?

Okay. This has been discussed many times here. Search for MDMT, or Minimum Design Metal Temperature. Most of the posts will be in forum378: Pipelines, Piping and Fluid Mechanics engineering. Use "Search". It's located between "Forum" and "FAQs" just below the title of post. You can also search the web. A good summary can be read here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimum_design_metal... . I hope this helps you.

Good luck,
