The Bolt Extension Rule node (the BoltExtension sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) defines the length of the exposed threads for the bolt length calculation for both studs and machine bolts from the bolted end generic data. The bolt extension also includes any additional length required for stud tensioners. The nut height and the washer thickness, if applicable, do not affect the bolt extension. You can define a standard bolt extension and as many as five alternate bolt extension values.

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

Alt Bolt Extension for Machine Bolts (Optional)

Specifies an alternate bolt extension. Be sure to include the units when specifying this value, for example, 0.125in.

Alt Bolt Extension For Studs (Optional)

Specifies an alternate bolt extension. Be sure to include the units when specifying this value, for example, 0.125in.

End Preparation (Required)

Type the end preparation code for the bolt extension. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndPreparation sheet in the Codelist Number column.

End Standard (Required)

Type the end standard code for the bolt extension. Valid values are defined in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the EndStandard sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Nominal Piping Diameter (Required)

Specifies the pipe diameter for the bolted end.

Nominal Piping Diameter Units (Required)

Specifies the unit of measurement, in or mm for example, for the values in the Nominal Piping Diameter column.

Pressure Rating (Required)

Type the pressure rating short description for the bolt extension. This property defines the envelope of pressure to which the bolted joint may be subjected. Valid short descriptions are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PressureRating sheet in the PressureRating ShortDescription column.

Pressure Rating Practice (Required)

Select the pressure rating practice. Options are defined in the Pressure Rating select list.

Standard Bolt Extension For Studs (Required)

Specifies the bolt extension for studs. Be sure to include the units when specifying this value, for example, 0.125in.

Standard Bolt Extension For Machine Bolts (Required)

Specifies the bolt extension for machine bolts. Be sure to include the units when specifying this value, for example, 0.125in.

Termination Class (Required)

Select the termination class code. Options are defined in the End Preparation select list.

Termination Sub Class (Required)

Select the termination subclass code. Options are defined in the End Preparation select list.
