This ensures that any appropriate conversion factors are applied within the calculation. 1. 57 mm) for statically cast pipe y ϭ A coefficient used to account for material creep. 7, depending on temperature. 0 This reduces equation (3) to tm ϭ (PDo/2SE) ϩ A which is recognizable as Barlow’s Formula. There may be a different value of y for carbon and ferritic and austenitic stainless steels depending on the pipe geometry. If the ratio of the OD to the wall thickness is less than 6, then y ϭ d/(d ϩ Do) In the commercially available pipe schedules, these ratios only occur in the heavier schedules in diameters 3½ in and smaller.

He couldn’t have known, because there is no such code that prohibits welding a short pup. Many contractors are code-savvy; many are not. To cite the codes is to speak with authority.
