ASME B31.8 (2010) Gas Pipeline Test Pressure And Hoop Stress Check Calculations
Calculate ASME B31.8 gas pipeline test pressure.
The pipeline test pressure is calculated from the design pressure. Set the internal pressure equal to the design pressure. The test pressure should be calculated for each pipeline section so that the local test pressure meets the test pressure requirements, and the pipe wall hoop stress does not exceed an acceptable level. Refer also to Appendix N. The corrosion allowance should include mechanical allowance (eg threads), erosion allowance and any other allowances.
