This option re-calculates the wall thickness values of entire pipelines or of an active group. This is necessary if any of the data used in the wall thickness calculations has changed, and thus needs to be updated. (Refer to the Reference Data Manager Reference Guide for a description of the Wall Thickness and Branch Reinforcement Equations and the data which affects this calculation).

You can use the Active Group option to select the piping segments to be revised based upon a combination of geography and database search criteria.

Delete Markers --- If the system encounters any errors in updating the wall thickness data it places a marker in the model. You can use this option to delete all the markers from the model.

Before using this command

This command is only necessary when data used in the wall thickness calculations has changed. (Refer to the Reference Data Manager Reference Guide for information on the data which affects wall thickness calculations).

  1. Identify Pipeline or Select Active Group by placing a data point to identify the pipeline to be updated or select the pipeline using one of the other options.

  2. Accept Piping for Thickness Calculations by selecting Confirm to accept the highlighted elements.

  • The user data of a component or pipe is not updated if the source of thickness data flag changes.

  • This command does not respect user overrides of schedule/thickness for piping commodities.
