Slug forces, thermal expansion… - various quick calculations

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

This part of the Pipemill piping design suite of programs is intended to deal with those simpler calculations, which might be unreliable if written down from memory. It is intended that the input screen is largely self explanatory.

Calculations programmed include:

  • Vessel skirt expansion
  • Dynamic forces at a pipe elbow due to liquid slugs in a gas stream
  • Linear interpolation of values
  • Thermal expansion rates for common pipe materials
  • Axial elongation of straight pipe due to internal pressure
  • Alternative methods of assessing external loads on flanged pipe joints.
