Although the required minimum thickness (tsr) of T-joints (tees) of class 2, 3 and lower classes of nuclear power plants in Japan is calculated from the design pressure and temperature for design, there are neither any rules nor standards for thickness management of wall thinning T-joints for facilities maintenance.

This paper describes additional parametric study results and proposes a guideline for thickness management of wall thinning T-joints. In other papers related to this project, the experiment and numerical simulation results are reported. This paper refers to these results and performs further investigation under the consideration of JSME (The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers) design, construction and maintenance codes and standards.
