THE FIRST FOOLS OF FOOD IRRADIATION

Tell Colorado Boxed Beef that they should stay out of the irradiated meat business……

Water, Water Everywhere....

Fire sprinkler water distribution system, installed by Brown Automatic Sprinklers, failed on 8/6/98, about a year after installation

slide3
failure site corresponds to:

  • maximum bending moment for coupled pipe
  • first exposed thread root

Water, Water Everywhere....

per Wiley Engineer’s Desk Reference

  • 12 foot on center standard hanger spacing [per NFPA]
  • W[H2O filled] = 2.71 #/ft
  • Mmax = 2.71*(122)*12/12 = 390 in-lbs

From specifications for Dyna-Flow pipe, NPS 1.5”, wall thickness = [OD-ID]/2 = 0.0810”

slide11
Water, Water Everywhere....

…and now, the “moment” of truth……

  • for tubular cross section, I moment of inertia= p(ro4-ri4)/4,
  • I/ym = section modulus = p(ro4-ri4)/4ro
  • for thin wall tubing,
  • ro ~ ri = r, (ro4-ri4) = (ro-ri)(ro+ri)(ro2-ri2) = t(2r)(2r2) = 4r3t
  • I/ym ~ pr2t = p(0.950)2(0.081) = 0.230 in3 for our Dyna-Flow pipe
  • a tensile stress of 390/0.230 = 1700 lbs/in2 is introduced into the top surfaces of the pipe at the support points
slide14
Standard Specification for Black and Hot-Dipped Zinc-Coated (Galvanized) Welded and Seamless Steel Pipe for Fire Protection Use

According to ASTM A795-90….

  • Composition similar to that for A36 steel – st = 58,000 lbs/in2
  • Appears to be about a safety factor of about 34 [36000/1700], when comparing applied tensile stress to material strength
slide15
another factor to consider:

With a 15 foot suspended length, Mmax goes to ~619 in-lbs and the safety factor drops to about 21.5. Dyna-Flow, properly installed, should not have failed.

consequences of threading the pipe sections for joining

slide17
ANSI/ASME B.1.20.1 – Pipe Threads, General Purpose

E2 = pitch diameter [distance between pitch lines] at full engagement [wrench tight] of coupling

slide18
ANSI/ASME B.1.20.1 – Pipe Threads, General Purpose
  • height of thread, h, = vertical distance from root to crest of thread
  • for 1.5” NPS, h = 0.06957”
slide19
ANSI/ASME B.1.20.1 – Pipe Threads, General Purpose
  • for 1.5” NPS, distance across pitch diameter [E2] = 1.84130”
  • diameter at first exposed thread root [DE2] = E2 – h
  • DE2 = 1.84130 – 0.06957 = 1.77173”
slide20
Water, Water Everywhere....

a few more calculations…..

  • Taking manufacturer’s ID specification, ID = 1.728”
  • Wall thickness, t*, at first exposed thread = [DE2 – ID]/2
  • t* = 0.022 in
  • I/ym = pd2t/4 = p(1.77173)2(0.022)/4 = 0.054 in3
  • s = 390/0.054 = 7200 lbs/in2
  • Safety Factor, S, = st/sappl = 58000/7200 = 8.0
  • Safety Factor down [from 21.5], but pipe should not have failed
slide21
Water, Water Everywhere....

sL

One more thing – the water pressure inside the pipe…

  • For an internal water pressure of p = 100 lbs/in2:
  • sL = pr/2t* = [100*(1.728/2)]/[2*0.022]
  • sL = 1960 lbs/in2
  • our Safety Factor has taken yet another hit
  • sappl = 7200+1960 = 9160 lbs/in2
  • Safety Factor = 35,000/9160 = 3.9
  • pipe should not have failed [and it didn’t, not immediately, that is…..
slide22
Water, Water Everywhere....

Stress Concentration Factor, K

  • Effect of cut pipe threads:
  • d = h = 0.06957, r ~ 0.05
  • b = DE2 = 1.77
  • a K of 2-3 would not be unusual
  • Would only contribute to failure under rapid load conditions…
  • Safety Factor would probably still cover it, but we’re getting close….
slide23
Steel Sprinkler Pipe, Subject 852

and then there is UL’s CRR [Corrosion Resistance Ratio]

  • Compares thicknesses of any scheduled pipe to the thickness of a schedule 40 pipe…. well, thickness3, that is
  • CRR = tsch-x3/t403
  • CRR of plain Dyna-Flow = 0.0813/0.1453 = 0.174
  • CRR of threaded Dyna-Flow = 0.0223/0.1453 = 0.0035
  • a decrease of 98%!!!

You might want to consider whether CRR is a proper basis for comparison between CPRs for materials having different wall thicknesses. We do have a quiz coming up…..

slide24
Standard Specification for Black and Hot-Dipped Zinc-Coated (Galvanized) Welded and Seamless Steel Pipe for Fire Protection Use

Then there’s the question of why Dyna-Flow should never have been threaded

taking the worst possible case,…

  • ODmax = ODnom + 1/64”
  • tmin = 0.875*tnom
slide25
Recalculating the wall thickness at the first exposed thread using worst case scenario…..
  • ODmax = 1.900 + 1/64 = 1.915625”
  • tmin = 0.875*0.081 = 0.070875”
  • IDmax = ODmax – 2*tmin = 1.773875”
  • DE2 = 1.77173”
  • t* = [DE2-ID]/2 = [1.77173-1.773875]/2 = -0.0011”!!!

BLAKE HOSPITAL SUES OVER DAMAGE

The parent company of Blake Medical Center is suing to recover nearly $4 million allegedly lost as a result of a construction-related incident in 1998 that left parts of the Bradenton hospital soaking wet. Crews with R.W. Construction Co. and Riverview-based Brown Automatic Sprinklers Inc. were at the hospital Dec. 28 to remodel an existing waiting room into a cardiac treatment room.

In the course of their work, workers failed to check a water pressure gauge on a fire sprinkler line before
