ISSUES RELATED TO RATCHETING IN PIPING COMPONENTS
MetadataShow full item record
Material and piping component test data involving ratcheting are discussed in regards to the phenomenon of shakedown. The data set studied indicates that the general belief about the occurrence of shakedown after a few cycles of ratcheting needs revisiting. Areas in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessels Code, Section III, Division 1, which address design issues related to ratcheting and shakedown, are discussed. A systematic methodology to understand the influence of ratcheting on fatigue failure and to incorporate ratcheting into the design of piping components is presented.
