ASME B36.10M-2015 pdf – Welded and Seamless Wrought Steel Pipe.
This Standard covers the standardization of dimenslons of welded and seamless wrought steel pipe for high or low temperatures arid pressures.
The word pipr is used, as distinguished from tiik. to apply to tubular products of di ceeuuns commonly used for pipeline and piping systems. Pipe NPS 12 (DN 300) and smaller have outside diameters numerically larger than their corresponding sires. In contrast, the outside diameters of tubes are numerically identical to the stze number for all sizes.
The size of all pipe is identified by the nominal pipe size.
The manufacture of pipe NPS ‘j,(DN 6) to NI 12 (DN 300), inclusive. is based on a standardized outside diameter (OD.). This 0,1). was originally selected so that pipe with a standard 0.0. and h.winga wall thickness that was typical of the period would have an Lnside dianieter (ID.) approximately equal to the nominal size. Although there is no such relation between the existing standard thickness — 0.0. and nominal size — these nominal sizes and standard 0.D.s continue in use as ‘standard”
The manufacture of pipe NI’S 14 (L)N 350) and larger preceeds on the basis of an 0.1). corresponding to the nominal size.
The dirnen.%ional standards for pipe described here are for products covered in ASTM specifications.
The nominal wall thicknesses are given in Table 1
The nominal weights of steel pipe are calculated values and are tabulated in Table 1
The nosninl plain end weight, in pounds per foot, is calculated using the following formula
When the selection of wall thickness depends primarfly upon capacity to resist internal pressure under givn conditions, the designer shall compute the exact value of wall thickness suitable for conditions for which the pipe is required. as prescribed in detail in the ASME Bader and Pressure Vessel Code, ASME B31 Code for Pressure Pipin& or other similar codes, whichever goven the construction, A thickness shall be selected from Table I suit the value computed to fulfill the conditions for which the pipe is desired.
