ISO/DIS 13535
Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 13535 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 67, Materials, equipment and offshore structures

for petroleum and natural gas industries, Subcommittee SC 4, Drilling and production equipment.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 13535:2000), which has been technically

revised.

Annex A forms a normative part of this International Standard. Annex B is for information only.

4 Design
4.1 General

Hoisting equipment shall be designed, manufactured and tested so that it is in every respect fit for its intended

purpose. The equipment shall safely transfer the load for which it is intended. The equipment shall be

designed for simple and safe operation.
4.2 Design conditions
The following design conditions shall apply:

a) the operator of the equipment shall be responsible for determination of the safe working load for any

hoisting operation;

b) the design and minimum operating temperature shall be – 20 °C (– 4 °F), unless supplementary

requirement SR 2 has been applied (see Clause A.3).
6 © ISO 2008 – All rights reserved
---------------------- Page: 15 ----------------------
ISO/DIS 13535

CAUTION — The equipment should not be used at the full load rating at temperatures below – 20 °C

(– 4 °F) unless appropriate materials with the required toughness properties at lower design

temperatures have been used (see Clause A.3).
4.3 Strength analysis
4.3.1 General

The equipment design analysis shall address excessive yielding, fatigue and buckling as possible modes of

failure.

The strength analysis shall be generally based on the elastic theory. An ultimate strength (plastic) analysis

may, however, be used where appropriate. Finite-element mesh analysis, in conjunction with analytical

methods, may be used.

All forces that may govern the design shall be taken into account. For each cross-section to be considered,

the most unfavourable combination, position and direction of forces shall be used.

4.3.2 Simplified assumptions

Simplified assumptions regarding stress distribution and stress concentration may be used, provided that the

assumptions are made in accordance with generally accepted practice or based on sufficiently comprehensive

experience or tests.
4.3.3 Empirical relationships

Empirical relationships may be used in lieu of analysis, provided such relationships are supported by

documented strain gauge test results that verify the stresses within the component. Equipment or components

which, by their design, do not permit the attachment of strain gauges to verify the design shall be qualified by

testing in accordance with 5.5.
4.3.4 Equivalent stress

The strength analysis shall be based on elastic theory. The nominal equivalent stress, according to the

Von Mises-Hencky theory, caused by the design load shall not exceed the maximum allowable stress AS as

max
calculated by Equation 1.
min
AS = (1)
max
where
YS is the specified minimum yield strength;
min
SF is the design safety factor.
4.3.5 Ultimate strength (plastic) analysis

An ultimate strength (plastic) analysis may be performed under any one of the following conditions:

a) for contact areas;

b) for areas of highly localized stress concentrations caused by part geometry, and other areas of high stress

gradients where the average stress in the section is less than or equal to the maximum allowable stress

as defined in 4.3.4.
© ISO 2008 – All rights reserved 7
---------------------- Page: 16 ----------------------
ISO/DIS 13535

In such areas, the elastic analysis shall govern for all values of stress below the average stress.

In the case of plastic analysis, the equivalent stress as defined in 4.3.4 shall not exceed the maximum

allowable stress AS as calculated by Equation 2.
max
min
AS = (2)
max
where
TS is the specified minimum ultimate tensile strength;
min
SF is the design safety factor.
4.3.6 Stability analysis

The stability analysis shall be carried out according to generally accepted theories of buckling.

4.3.7 Fatigue analysis

The fatigue analysis shall be based on a period of time of not less than 20 years, unless otherwise agreed.

The fatigue analysis shall be carried out according to generally accepted theories. A method that may be used

is defined in reference [3].
4.4 Size class

The size class shall represent the dimensional interchangeability and the load rating of equipment.

4.5 Contact surface radii

Figure 7, Figure 8, Figure 9 and Table 6 show radii of hoisting-tool contact surfaces. These contact radii are

applicable to hoisting tools used in drilling (including tubing hooks), but all other work-over tools are excluded.

4.6 Rating

All hoisting equipment furnished under this International Standard shall be rated as specified herein.

Such ratings shall consist of a load rating for all equipment and a bearing-load rating for all equipment

containing bearings within the primary load path.

The bearing-load rating is intended primarily to achieve consistency of ratings, but is also intended to provide

a reasonable service life for bearings when used at loads within the equipment-load rating.

The load rating shall be based on the design safety factor as specified in 4.7, the specified minimum yield

strength of the material used in the primary-load-carrying components and the stress distribution as

determined by design calculations and/or data developed in a design verification load test as specified in 5.5.

The load rating shall be marked on the equipment (refer to Clause 10).
4.7 Design safety factor
The design safety factor shall be established from Table 1 as follows.

Over 4 448 kN (500 short tons) 2,25
In this formula, the value of R shall be in kilonewtons.

The design safety factor is intended as a design criterion and shall not under any circumstances be construed

as allowing loads on the equipment in excess of the load rating.
4.8 Shear strength

For purposes of design calculations involving shear, the ratio of yield strength in shear to yield strength in

tension shall be 0,58.
4.9 Specific equipment
Refer to Clause 9 for all additional equipment-specific design requirements.
4.10 Design documentation

Documentation of the design shall include methods, assumptions, calculations and design requirements.

Design requirements shall include, but not be limited to, those criteria for size, test and operating pressures,

material, environmental and specification requirements, and pertinent requirements upon which the design is

to be based.
The requirements shall also apply to design change documentation.
5 Design verification test
5.1 General

To assure the integrity of equipment design, design verification testing shall be performed as specified below.

Design verification testing of equipment shall be carried out and/or certified by a department or organization

independent of the design function.

Equipment which, by virtue of its simple geometric form, permits accurate stress analysis through calculation

only shall be exempted from design verification testing.
5.2 Sampling of test units

To qualify design calculations applied to a family of units with an identical design concept but of varying sizes

and ratings, the following sampling options apply.

⎯ A minimum of three units of the design shall be subjected to design verification testing. The test
