KNOWING DESIGN CODES ESSENTIAL FOR MAKING, SPECIFYING FSU PIPE

Writing acceptable pipe specifications for design and construction of joint-venture pipeline projects in the former Soviet Union (FSU) requires a thorough knowledge of FSU pipeline design codes. In this occasional series comparing FSU code requirements contained in SNIP 2.05.06-85 with U.S. codes, the initial article (OGJ, Mar. 7, p. 67; TRIS 643578) provided a general introduction to both systems. The article also examined in detail their stress-analysis provisions. (SNIP is the English pronunciation of the Russian acronym for Construction Standards and Regulations.) This second article compares the U.S. and FSU technical requirements for line pipe in pressure piping service.
