    Annealing of an old ASME coded pressure vessel

    NACE will limit hardness to 22 HRC pretty much across the board, which lines up with your company standards of ~235 HBW. I typically deal with NACE MR0175 & NACE MR0103.

    Annealing of an old ASME coded pressure vessel

    How old is the vessel? Wondering if maybe a stress relieve treatment would suffice instead of full on annealing/normalizing. Any records on the heat treatment history? One thing I've found in multi-step heat treatments is that a lot of scale can build up.

    Oklahoma is in

    At one point, i could have sworn we had a "After the PE Exam" subforum. Anybody know where that went? Oh, and I completely forgot to get that pass pic up. Well, for good measure:

    Problem 125 from NCEES practice exam

    Also notice that the area, A, of the bolt will cancel out of the shear stress due to torsion equation and not affect the shear force (which makes sense). That looks to be the way the NCEES solution did it. Since the bolts all have the same area and same distance from centroid, J = Nr^2A (Where N is the number of bolts). When calculating J and using the parallel axis theorem, the very small Jc value of pi*D^4/32 is ~ zero. So you are only left with r^2*A as the meaningful value. And this means that N should be 2 in this case, because the center bolt J is ~ 0 (As its axis lies on the bolt group centroidal axis). Hope I didn't confuse the hell out you. Check out the MERM equation 53.64, but especially read the paragraph above the equation.

    I also laugh my ass off every time I see "Mama" and the avatar. Alligators are angry cause they have all dem teeth and no toothbrush!

    Lol, I'm doing the same almost daily. Just gotta make sure this wasn't some kind of sick joke!

    Next Steps

    I had to take a law & engineering exam after reading board rules and state statutes. That's out of the way now, so should have my packet in a week or two. Then...

    Machine Design & Materials Oct 2018

    Way to go! Looking forward to those lessons learned. I'll probably add to it in hopes of helping others who might be taking on this beast in April.

    Damn. Sorry to hear that. If you don't mind me asking, did you take a review course?

    Would be interested to know what it was for MDM. Pretty much all agreed it was a rough exam.
