The Preferred Cap Screw Length Rule node (the PreferredCapScrewLength sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) specifies the list of available purchased, or preferred, bolt lengths, as a function of the bolt diameter and the bolt material grade. This sheet contains all the default values that the software is to use.

This rule is used when the Cap Screw Length Round Off Option in Model Options (on the DefaultProjectOptions sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) is set to "Use list of preferred bolt lengths" (15).

  • When you use the Preferred Cap Screw Length rule, the software rounds the computed cap screw length down to the largest preferred cap screw length in the list exceeded by the computed cap screw length.

  • The software applies a 0.0001" tolerance to the computed bolt length when selecting a preferred bolt length. For example, if the computed bolt length is 2.75001", the preferred bolt length selected is 2.75", not 3.00".

Bolt Diameter From (Required)

Type the bolt diameter lower bounds for which to specify a preferred length. Be sure to include the units, for example, 0.5in or 1.375in.

Bolt Diameter To (Required)

Type the bolt diameter upper bounds for which to specify a preferred length. Be sure to include the units, for example, 0.5in or 1.375in.

Bolt Diameter Increment (Required)

Type the value by which to increment the bolt diameter. Be sure to include the units, for example, 0.5in or 1.375in.

Material Grade (Required)

Type the material grade code for the bolt. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the MaterialsGrade sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Preferred Bolt Length From (Required)

Type the preferred bolt length lower bound for this bolt diameter and material grade.

Preferred Bolt Length To (Required)

Type the preferred bolt length upper bound for this bolt diameter and material grade.

Preferred Bolt Length Increment (Required)

Type the value by which to increment the preferred bolt length.
