Pipes and Pipe Joints

Chapter Objectives

  1. Design the thickness of a thin pipe by taking into account the internal diameter, longitudinal joint efficiency, allowable tensile stress and a constant c.

  2. Select a proper flange joint for the given range of internal pressures.

  3. Calculate the wall thickness for class B pipe joints taking into account the pipe diameter, internal pressure and allowable tensile stress for pipe material.

  4. Design the elliptical pipe joint with major and minor axes, and determine flange thickness due to bending moment on flange caused by tightening force on each bolt.

  5. Determine the bolt size by selecting a proper class of bolt, taking minimum proof strength of bolt, a factor of safety, and separating force due ...
