chimaney silencer + acoustic + ASME standard

Dear All my friends,

I have to design silencer at chimaney outlet. The silencer can be easily designed for mechanical strength as per ASME section VIII standard. But now I have to design the silencer from acoustic point of view as I have to consider the db level of the sound generated due to very high velocity flue gases.

 please tell me which ASME standard can I follow to meet the requirement from acoustic point of views.

thanks in advance,

 Regards,

Abhijit Nalawade.

 

ASME pressure vessel section VIII division 2

Free Tags: 

Hi, everyone,

I am wondering whether anybody could explain how to determine primary stress and secondary stress when FE software is used when the pressure vessel is designed using ASME section VIII vision 2.

The code has some explanation using plasticity (self-limiting). But it is very hard to use for practical use.

Thanks
