TechTip: How Xist® Estimates External Pressure Requirements for Pipes and Tubes

Posted Date:

Facilitated by:
Rick Shilling

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).
