Pipe Properties
(See Tubing Calculator Below)

Important Notices:
bulletThis calculator allows easy access to standard pipe properties and characteristics. The procedure calculates:
bulletSection properties: inside and outside diameter, wall thickness, inside cross sectional area, transverse metal area, moment of inertia, section modulus, and radius of gyration.
bulletSurface properties: inside and outside surface area.
bulletWeight: for a variety of common metals.
bulletTube properties are calculated below.
bulletSimply enter the pipe diameter, pipe schedule and material. In the Report section select how you want the various results to read out. Click on Calculate and you will get the results in the formats you selected.

Notes:

  1. The schedule list is all inclusive. Hence, some of the pipe schedules shown are not available for every nominal pipe size. If you select an invalid nominal pipe size and schedule combination, the server will return a list showing which schedules are available for the nominal pipe size you specified. We apologize for this awkward behavior but it is due to current HTML and browser technology limitations.
  2. Pipe weight is based on low carbon steel with a density of 0.2833 lb/in. For other metals, an appropriate conversion factor is used.
    Please note that actual pipe weight is permitted to vary by as much as plus/minus 10% from the weight per length calculated by this procedure. Check the applicable standard (ASTM, API, DIN etc.) for allowable weight tolerances for the pipe specification of interest to you.
