Caesar II A106B Concern/Question with B31.3 code

Caesar II A106B Concern/Question with B31.3 code

Caesar II A106B Concern/Question with B31.3 code

I am just curious. From the notes in appendix A of b31.3 note 57 states "Conversion of carbides to graphite may occur after prolonged exposure to temperatures over 800 F." Why does Caesar II not give any type of warning or error if I am using A106B pipe with operating temperature at 900F?

RE: Caesar II A106B Concern/Question with B31.3 code

Probably because it's not a cook-book type piece of software that will do all the thinking (and make all necessary decisions) that the designer should do him-/herself.

Because Caesar is a flexibility stress analysis program and assumes the User has some basic understanding of materials and engineering not just someone who can "bang numbers in to get numbers out".
