If the mean radius of the casing divided by the wall thickness is less than or equal to 10, then the thick-wall vessel
criteria applies. If the ratio is greater than 10, then the thin-wall vessel criteria applies.

Now that the maximum diametrical deflection for th egiven casing has been determined, the hang load that will
generate that same amount o fdeflection must be determined. This value will be the Maximum Hang Load Capacity

Step 6.7 - 6.8: Graph the Recommended Operating Range
The graph will have pressure (psi) on the x-axis and Hang Load (lbs) on the y-axis.
Calculate the slope between the points (0 psi, 0.8*P
Lyield
) and (collapse pressure, P
L_additional_load
)
slope = P

Note: slope

equals zero for C-21 casing hangers and for C-22, C-29 casing hangers with HPI seals.
Limit_1 = RJS if Joint Type = "Round"
BJS otherwise
Limit_2 = RJS if Joint Type = "Unknown"
Limit_1 otherwise

At collapse pressure, the casing is already deflected due to the pressure. Thus, the amount of deflection that can
occur due to loading is limited since the total deflection must be less than or equal to rD
yp
. First calculate the
amount of allowable deflection due to loading, then calculate the amount of hang load required to generate this
deflection.
If Buttress Joint Strength or Round Joint Strength or 80% of Plain End Yield is less than 80% of P
Lyield
, then the
smallest of the three values shall serve as a maximum load limit for the graph. Note that Buttress Joint Strength is
not considered as a possible limit when the joint type is umknown. Determine the least of the four values, as
appropriate.

The recommended operating range is represented by the area in the 1st quadrant of the graph that is confined by:
The equation of the line to graph will be the Maximum Recommended Hang Load for a given casing exposed to a
given pressure with the given casing hanger. This equation can be applied to the recommended pressure range
which extends from 0 psi to 80% of the collapse pressure.

Here are some values at specific pressures to be used when graphing for reference only:
Max_Rec_Load(0) = 4.459E+05
Max_Rec_Load(0.8*q
collapse

Max_Rec_Load(q
collapse

Given Pressure, q
given

Allowable_Load = Max_Rec_Load(q
given

given
) <= Max_Limit
Max_Limit otherwise
Allowable_Load = Allowable_Load if (q

collapse
)
"Pressure exceeds recommended maximum" otherwise
Allowable_Load = Pressure exceeds recommended maximum
The equation for the Maximum Calculated Recommended Hang Load can be used to calculate the maximum hang
load at a given pressure less than or equal to 80% collapse pressure:
