Abstract: Abstract Piping systems having service temperatures lower than ambient present a challenge for the pipe support design. Pipe supports for these cold piping systems are different from normal type of supports on pipes with service temperatures above ambient. Normally hot insulated piping systems have shoe type of supports directly welded to the pipe. In this case there is no relative movement between pipe support i.e. shoe and pipe while the pipe displaces due to changes in fluid service temperatu…
