Manufacturing technology

For ASME B31.1, ASME B31.3, DL/T 5366-2014 seamless pipe will always use Wl=1.0. For electric-welded pipe Wl will be specified from database. More...

When using  GOST 32388-2013, pipe physical properties are taken from different materials databases depending on pipe type (seamless/welded).

Use notes 6,9,10

Should be checked if number of displacement cycles exceeds 200

Meet D1, Note 10 a,c,d,e,f
