The Bolt Diameter Equivalence Rule node (the BoltDiameterEquivalenceRule sheet in the Bolt Diameter Equivalence.xls workbook) is an optional rule that you can use to define a correlation between ASME bolt diameters and ISO bolt diameters. This rule is only intended to be used in determining an equivalent bolt diameter for reporting purposes. The delivered sample data represents a correlation between ASME bolt diameters and ISO bolt diameters from ½ inch to 2 inches.

This rule is used when you enable the Bolt Diameter Equivalence Option in Model Options (on the DefaultProjectOptions sheet) in the Piping Specification.xls workbook.

Bolt Diameter In Primary Units (Required)

Specifies the bolt diameter in the first unit of measurement.

Bolt Diameter In Secondary Units (Required)

Specifies the bolt diameter in the second unit of measurement to equate to the primary unit of measurement.

Primary Units of Measure (Required)

Specifies the unit of measurement, in or mm for example, for the values in the Bolt Diameter Primary Units column.

Secondary Units of Measure (Required)

Specifies the unit of measurement, in or mm for example, for the values in the Bolt Diameter Secondary Units column.
