Re: [PipingDesign] Regarding stress check for hydro test

Aramco SAES calls for hydro test pressures that would create a hoop stress of 90% of the SMYS. This is for ASME B31.3 piping. At the time of testing the resultant hoop stress will also include stresses due to other sustained loading. This should be contained within the 10% balance. Wonder, what if it does not. No specific check is done to ensure this.
