The Piping > Piping Specification > Piping Materials Classes > spec name > Piping Materials Class Data node displays information about the piping material class.

Approval Date (Optional)

Specifies the time or date the status of the piping materials class was approved.

Approved By (Optional)

Specifies the name of the person or group who approved the status of the piping materials class.

Automated Flange Selection Option (Optional)

Select enabled to activate the automated flange selection logic to distinguish between flanges inserted on plain piping versus fitting-to-fitting situations. Typically, you would enable this option for piping material classes that include slip-on flanges or lap-joint flanges. For more information, see Automated Flange Selection.

  • If disabled, the generic short code for the flange that is subject to automated flange selection is used for this piping material class.

  • If enabled, the software selects the generic short code for the flange for plain piping or selects the flange for a fitting based on where the flange is inserted.

Comments (Optional)

Specifies a brief comment describing the justification for the piping materials class status.

Design Standard (Optional)

Specify the design standard that you want to use in this piping materials class to calculate the piping wall thickness and the branch reinforcements.

Examination (Optional)

Specifies the standard to use for examinations, inspections, and testing.

Fluid Service (Optional)

Specifies the intended fluid service for this piping materials class. You may want to include the physical state of the fluid. Examples are, Potable Water, High Pressure Steam, Underground Water, or Chilled Water. In the case of a jacketed piping specification, this property represents the fluid service for the core.

Gasket Requirement Override (Optional)

Specifies the gasket override code for the piping material class.

Hyperlink To Human Spec (Optional)

Specifies the location of the electronic version of the piping materials class. You can specify the location using the http:// protocol or by using a Universal Resource Location (URL) address (for example, \\server\share).

Jacket and Jumper Fluid Service (Optional)

Specifies the intended fluid service for jackets and jumpers in this piping materials class. You may want to include the physical state of the fluid. Examples are, Potable Water, High Pressure Steam, or Chilled Water.

Jacket Material Of Construction Class (Optional)

Specifies the construction class material for the jacket.

Jacket Materials Description (Optional)

Specifies a generic description of the material used for jackets in this piping materials class. An example is, CL150, Carbon Steel, RFFE, Trim 8, < 2" SWE, >= 2" BE. Do not include the intended fluid service or applicable corrosion allowance.

Jumper Material of Construction Class (Optional)

Specifies the material of construction class for the jumper.

Last Modified On (Optional)

Specifies the time or date the status of the piping materials class was set.

Lining Material (Optional)

Specifies the type of lining material (for example, cement-mortar, concrete, epoxy, rubber, or plastic lining) required for the field lining of plain piping within this piping materials class. If you do not specify a value, the software assigns a default value of "Undefined".

Lining Requirements (Optional)

Specifies whether or not field lining is required in this piping material class. If you set this to Lined, you need to define information in the Field Lining Thickness rule.

Materials Description (Optional)

Specifies a generic description of the material used for this piping materials class. An example is, CL150, Carbon Steel, RFFE, Trim 8, < 2" SWE, >= 2" BE. Do not include the intended fluid service or applicable corrosion allowance. This property is used in reporting.

Materials Group (Optional)

Specifies the material group for the materials class.

Materials Type (Optional)

Specifies the material type for the materials class.

Materials of Constructions Class (Optional)

Specifies the material of construction class. This option is used for grouping similar piping material classes for the benefit of the specification writer in managing piping specifications.

Piping Commodity Override Option (Optional)

Specifies whether you want to disable, enable with no justification required, or enable with justification required the ability of a piping designer to override the piping materials class to select a piping commodity manually.

This setting overrides the piping commodity override option setting on the Model Options node for this piping material class.

Piping Note 1 (Optional)

Specify the standard notes that you want to associate with the piping materials class. Standard notes are defined in the Piping > Piping Specification > Notes node.

Piping Spec Status (Optional)

Specifies the status of the piping materials class.

Responsibility (Optional)

Specifies the name of the person or group responsible for specifying the status of the piping materials class.

Revision Number (Optional)

Specifies the revision number of the piping materials class. If you have enabled the Piping Spec Version Management Option in the Model Options node in Catalog or the Default Project Options sheet, the text that you enter here is appended to the end of the piping specification name. For example, if the piping specification is originally named 1C0100, the piping specification with the revision is named "1C0100, Rev: <text>". You must change this revision number manually each time you make a change to a piping specification.

Spec Name (Required)

Type a name for the piping material class that you are defining. The software displays this name on the interface. All names must be unique.

Stress Relief (Optional)

Specifies the stress relief standard to use for the piping materials class. Stress-relieving heat treatment reduces residual stresses resulting from bending and welding.

Stress Relief Requirement (Optional)

Specifies the stress relief requirement for the material class. If you do not define a value, the software assigns a value of 1 (Undefined) by default.

Washer Creation Option (Optional)

Specifies whether or not the software should create washers at a bolted joint.
