Simulations of the reliability index [beta] used operating pressure, crack length and SDR parameter (standard dimension ratio
) as a function of 3 levels of [K.sub.IC].
In the following, we will derive the analytical form of the optimum dimension ratio defined as
By setting the partial derivative of the attenuation constant [[alpha].sup.H.sub.m,n] relative to [zeta] as zero, the optimum dimension ratio can be obtained
Considering a special case of [bar.[epsilon].sup.b] = [bar.[epsilon].sup.a] = [bar.[epsilon]], the optimum dimension ratio for the dominant EHi, i mode can be simplified as
By (8), we selected the dimension ratio of [M.sub.S5] to be 1/4 of that of [M.sub.S6], that is,
The dimension ratio for MS1 ~MS4 can also be derived by (6).
The PHMSA final rule issued in December allows distribution and transmission pipelines to start using PA-11 of a .40 allowable design factor at operating pressure up to 200 psig (the current limit is 100 psig) if the minimum wall thickness is Standard Dimension Ratio
11 or thicker and the rapid crack propagation characteristics of each new pipe design are measured using accepted industry standard test methods.
The change in standard dimension ratio
, which relates pipe wall thickness and outside diameter, sees the heavier SDR11 product replaced by SDR13.6 in both sizes.
As this was a very complex process water plant, Agru supplied several hundred metres of PVDF piping with standard dimension ratios
(SDRs) of 21 and 33, and several hundred bends, stub flanges and tees made entirely from PVDF.
The study also addresses key trends such as packaging size and dimension ratios
, openings that offer a finer drinking experience, resealability for portion control, different pack sizes to meet specific market demands, and colors and graphics to cut through the clutter on store shelves.
