Wall Thickness Allowances
Tips & Tricks
For stress calculations, some standards use “analysis wall thickness,” which we get by subtracting corrosion, abrasion allowance, manufacturing allowances (threading, grooving, etc.), and mill tolerances from nominal wall thickness. All needed values can be entered in the “Piping Cross‑Section” dialog box, “Stress Analysis Parameters” tab.
