I made a calculation for a pipe that needs to handle 1 MPa pressure. I based my calculation on
ASME VIII div1
My calculation says that my pipe needs to be 3 mm thick. But do I also need to account for the tolerances pipe manufactures have on the thickness?
This should be 12,5% according to a colleague of mine (sorry I don't have the source) but I am quite confident he is correct about this.
I can't find a note in the
ASME VIII div1 about this maybe I over-read this.
So the question is: do I need to add the pipe wall thickness tolerance to my calculated thickness to be theoretically correct according the
ASME VIII div1?
