Determination Of Pipe Support Spans In Nuclear Facility Piping System


Structural integrity of the pipeline system on the installation of nuclear power plant is a construction system of large and complex. This piping system must be able to withstand all loads that work well static and dynamic loads.
The ability of piping system to withstand the loading of work so as not to cause the failure known as a piping system Flexibility. The location and span of supports must be determined first before analysing. By optimizing the span of supports will save construction costs. The equation for calculating the maximum span based on the ASME B31.1 will be descibed in this paper. Keyword: nuclear power, support, span. By: Budi Santoso; Pusat Rekayasa Perangkat Nuklir-Batan
