Abstract: Documented thermowell failures designed to PTC 19.3TW and earlier, evaluated with the drag crisis included, reveals the potential for enhanced reliability of the current standard in reducing the risk of failure. The code calculation remains largely intact apart from a conservative Strouhal number in conjunction with Reynolds number criteria marking the onset and terminus of the drag crisis.
