TechTip: How Xist Estimates External Pressure Requirements for Pipes and Tubes
This webinar will investigate how Xist uses ASME code design methods to determine the external pressure requirements for cylinders. Using three cases, we will discuss
- how to determine thickness for specified temperature and pressure
- how to determine the maximum external pressure for a specified thickness
- external pressure limitations as compared to internal pressure
To confirm the software results, we will provide hand calculations (per ASME code requirements).
