Pipe tee design: ring reinforced and stub-in types (ASME B31.3…)

Pipemill: for the design, analysis and layout of piping components

Pipemill enables the design of reinforced and stub-in tees manufactured from plate or straight pipe. Code compliance is with ASME B31.3 Section 304.3 (2004), or BS EN 13480.

Input variables of note

  • Lateral branch connections are allowed to an angle from the perpendicular of 45 degrees.
  • Ring or saddle reinforced tee may be specified
  • Standard pipe sizes from integrated database

Pipemill results

  • Results are presented in full and summary form
  • Iterative optimisation is facilitated by a results summary overlaid on the input screen
  • Stress intensification factors are calculated for all connections.

Errors and warnings

Pipemill will flag if the tee needs ring reinforcement.

Analysis support

  • Example analyses
  • Integral database of commonly available pipe sizes, with automatic input of selected pipe data
  • Explanatory notes
  • Scientific calculator
