 CALCULATION OF INDIVIDUAL PIPE WEIGHTS For Double-Extra Strong (XXS) Weight Steel Pipe and Empty or Full of Contents, with/without Insulation, and with/without Ice Buildup Input Data: Specific Gravity of Contents = Insulation Thickness, t(insul) = in. Insulation Density = pcf Ice Thickness, t(ice) = in. Results: Input Cells are Yellow Combination Weights (plf) Nominal 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). Inside 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).

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.)
