Hi everybody. I have a question that's been bothering me for quit some time. An extra point of view on things would be appreciated. If a pipeline is installed in a trench it is going to be manipulated with cranes and the pipeline will be bent. The bending stress can be estimated but compared to what? Could the stress be categorized as a secundary bending stress? Most codes i have come across seem to limit the allowable to the 90% yield value... What would you chose to be the allowable when the design code is ASMEB31.3?
