The Pipe Branch Fabrication Rule node (the PipeBranchFabricationRule sheet in the Sample Data For Reinforced Branches using Implied Pipe Stock.xls workbook) is an optional rule that defines the length of pipe stock required to fabricate a reinforcing pad saddle and the length of pipe stock required for an optional heavier schedule header pipe at the branch intersection for a reinforcing pad or a reinforcing weld. This additional length of pipe is considered in the pipe stock cut length calculation.

The pipe stock required for the branch reinforcement is determined by the following data.

Spec Name (Required)

Define a unique piping materials class name for the reinforced branch header.

Header Size (Required)

Specify the nominal piping diameter (NPD) of reinforced branch header.

Header Size Units (Required)

Define the system of units for the reinforced branch header size, such as in (inches).

Branch Size (Required)

Specify the nominal piping diameter (NPD) of reinforced branch.

Branch Size Units (Required)

Define the system of units for the reinforced branch size, such as in (inches).

Angle Low (Optional)

Specify the lower bound value of the acute branch angle required for the Branch Intersection rule. You can specify an angular tolerance of 45º or 90º about the nominal branch angle.

Angle High (Optional)

Specify the upper bound value of the acute branch angle required for the Branch Intersection rule. You can specify an angular tolerance of 45º or 90º about the nominal branch angle.

Branch Reinforcement Type (Required)

Define the branch reinforcement type for which additional pipe stock is to be reported.

You can only modify the description of the branch reinforcement type. Do not edit the codelist numerical values

Saddle Fabrication Commodity Code (Conditionally required)

Specify a contractor commodity code value for the pipe stock. This commodity code value is used to fabricate a reinforcing pad saddle. If you do not specify a commodity code value for the reinforcing pad saddle, then the default pipe stock defined in the corresponding piping materials class is used.

A commodity code value is not required for a reinforcing weld.

Schedule Practice Saddle Fabrication (Conditionally required)

Specify a schedule practice, such as U.S. Practice and DIN, for the pipe stock used to fabricate a reinforcing pad saddle. This value is required if the schedule practice of the pipe stock is different from the default value defined in the corresponding piping material class.

This property represents a system-determined list of enumerated values. The administrator can revise the description of the schedule, but the value associated with that description and the number of schedule practices cannot be modified.

Schedule Thickness Saddle Fabrication (Conditionally required)

Specify the schedule thickness of the pipe stock used to fabricate a reinforcing pad saddle. This value is required only if the schedule thickness of the pipe stock is different from the default header pipe defined in the corresponding piping materials class.

Pipe Size Saddle Fabrication (Required)

Specify the nominal piping diameter of the pipe stock used to fabricate a reinforcing pad saddle.

Pipe Size Units Saddle Fabrication (Required)

Define the system of units for the pipe stock size used to fabricate a reinforcing pad saddle, such as in (inches).

Pipe Length Saddle Fabrication (Required)

Specify the length of the pipe stock used to fabricate a reinforcing pad saddle.

Commodity Code Heavy Schedule Header (Conditionally required)

Define a contractor commodity code value for the heavier schedule header pipe with a reinforced branch. If you do not specify a commodity code value for header pipe, then the default pipe stock defined in the corresponding piping materials class is used.

A commodity code value is not required for a reinforcing weld.

Schedule Thickness Heavy Schedule Header (Conditionally required)

Specify the schedule thickness of the pipe stock used to fabricate heavier schedule header pipe stock with a reinforced branch.

Pipe Size Heavy Schedule Header (Conditionally required)

Specify the nominal piping diameter of the heavier schedule header pipe with a reinforced branch. This value is required only if the size of the pipe stock used to fabricate the reinforcing pad saddle is different from the default header pipe defined in the corresponding piping materials class.

Pipe Size Units Heavy Schedule Header (Conditionally required)

Define the system of units for the pipe stock used to fabricate a heavier schedule header pipe with a reinforced branch, such as in (inches).

Pipe Length Heavy Schedule Header (Conditionally required)

Specify the length of the of the pipe stock used to fabricate a heavier schedule header pipe with a reinforced branch.

Commodity Code Reinforced Branch Run (Conditionally required)

Define a contractor commodity code value for the reinforced branch run. If you do not specify a commodity code value for the reinforced branch run, then the default pipe stock defined in the corresponding piping materials class is used.

Schedule Practice Reinforced Branch Run (Conditionally required)

Specify a schedule practice, such as U.S. Practice and DIN, for the pipe stock used to fabricate a reinforced branch run. This value is required, if the schedule of the pipe stock used to fabricate is different from the default value for that piping materials class.

This property represents a system-determined list of enumerated values. The administrator can revise the description of the schedule, but the value associated with the description and the number of schedule practices cannot be modified.

Schedule Thickness Reinforced Branch Run (Conditionally required)

Specify the schedule thickness of the pipe stock used to fabricate a reinforced branch run.

Pipe Size Reinforced Branch Run (Conditionally required)

Specify the nominal piping diameter of the reinforced branch run. This value is required only if the size of the reinforcing pad saddle is different from the default header pipe defined in the corresponding piping materials class.

Pipe Size Units Reinforced Branch Run (Conditionally required)

Define the system of units for the pipe stock size used to fabricate a reinforcing branch run, such as in (inches).

Pipe Length Reinforced Branch Run (Conditionally required)

Specify the length of the pipe stock used to fabricate a reinforced branch run.
