Properties for Extra Strong (X-strong) weight pipe are generally taken where available from the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition (CD Database), and then otherwise from the Crane Technical Paper No. 410, "Flow of Fluids through Valves, Fittings, and Pipe" (1991).
Outside
Properties for Extra Strong (X-strong) weight pipe are generally taken where available from the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition (CD Database), and then otherwise from the Crane Technical Paper No. 410, "Flow of Fluids through Valves, Fittings, and Pipe" (1991).

Formulas Used:
 
Pipe Weight = (p*(OD2-ID2)/4)*(490/144) (Note: xx-strong steel pipe weights shown in table are taken from references below.)
Contents Weight = (SG*w(contents))*(p*ID2/4)/144 (Note: densitiy of water is assumed = 62.4 pcf.)
Insulation Weight = w(insul)*(t(insul)/12)*(p*(OD+t(insul))/12)
 
Ice Weight = w(ice)*(t(ice)/12)*(p*(OD+2*t(insul)+t(ice))/12) (Note: density of ice is assumed = 56.0 pcf.)
