2. #### EN13480-3 Tee Branch Reinforcement Pad Calculation

by , 05-31-2017 at 01:03 PM
Hello*

I am doing the branch tee reinforcement pad requirement calculation according to EN 13480-3 section 8.4.3. I have some queries as below.

(1) In Equation 8.4.3-4 ( lpl <= ls). I have calculated the effective reinforcement of shell pipe (ls) value according to equation 8.4.1-2 which is coming around 190 mm. So According to the equation I can use the reinforcement pad width less than ls means less than 190 mm. If I follow the above equation * it will never satisfy the final equation 8.4.3-6. it seems this equation is not correct.
If code restrict the reinforcement pad width how we can satisfy the final equation without increasing the pad width where reinforcement pad width is also limited to eas according to equation 8.4.3-5. Refer attached code page attachment (EN13480-3-Page-82.pdf). Please suggest.

(2) EN13480-3 equation 8.4.3-5 condition eapl<=eas shall be satisfy.
I am using the reinforcement pad thickness same as shell thickness* means pad will be cut from shell pipe during fabrication.

I am using the nominal pad thickness same as shell thickness 16 mm with assuming same corrosion allowances. Refer below calculation.
My nominal shell thickness en=16 mm. c0=3.4* c1=0.3 mm.so eas=16-3.4-0.3= 12.3 mm.
Plate thickness used enpl=16mm. c0=3.4* c1=0.3 mm. so eapl=12.3 mm.

Is my calculation & understanding is correct.

As in brief above code restrict the reinforcement pad thickness as well as width to compensate the cutting area for branch.

6. #### My Personal Safety Quotes:

by , 05-27-2013 at 12:07 PM
Over the years I have come up with several of my own safety and leadership quotations that I have used either in conferences, meetings or training sessions. Sometimes you can say just a few words and the message sticks with people for the rest of their lives. I have put below a few of my favourites that I have had success with when trying to make people accept their responsibilities and become leaders. Hopefully people will find useful to use during their own HSE or OHS training etc.

"Good leaders are those who know how to motivate and challenge people at all levels of an organization to achieve their best performance. In addition they support and provide the resources necessary to ensure it is possible to meet the goals that have been set”.

“No one cares how much you know about safety, until they know you can add to their success”

“ If you want to be a safety leader you must have innovation to succeed”

“I may not be a financial director, but I can help reduce your financial loss”

“If you don’t consider safety part of your leadership strategy, then you’re in the wrong job”

“A company director who thinks safety is a costly overhead should resign at the first opportunity”

“Only a fool would take a risk that would lose money or cause personal injury”

“You can’t say cutback on safety, and build a successful business in the same sentence”

“Real leaders know when to motivate and when to stand up for change”

Description: Programming language for engineering and mathematical calculations. An extensive library of functions makes it easy to work (in particular a graphical representation of data)

What is Matlab
MATLAB - a high-level technical computing language, interactive environment for algorithm development and modern tools of data analysis. MATLAB compared to traditional programming languages ??(C / C + +, Java, Pascal, FORTRAN) allows an order to reduce the time solution of typical problems and simplifies the development of new algorithms. MATLAB is the foundation of the entire product family MathWorks is the main tool for solving a wide range of scientific and applied problems in areas such as: modeling facilities and development of control systems, design of communication systems, signal and image processing, measurement signals and testing, financial modeling, computational biology, etc.
MATLAB allows the kernel as easy to work with real matrices, complex and analytical data types. Contains built-in linear algebra (LAPACK, BLAS), fast Fourier transform (FFTW), functions for working with polynomials, functions, basic statistics and numerical solutions of differential equations. All built-in core MATLAB developed and optimized by experts and work faster or the same as their equivalent in C / C + +
Key features
• Platform-independent, high-level programming language oriented to matrix computations and the development of algorithms
• Interactive environment for code development, managing files and data
• The functions of linear algebra, statistics, Fourier analysis, the solution of differential equations, etc.
• Rich visualization, 2-D and 3-D graphics
• Built-in user interface design to create complete applications in MATLAB
• Tools integration with C / C + +, inheritance code, ActiveX technology
