The Thickness Data Rule node (the ThicknessDataRule sheet in the Piping Specification.xls workbook) defines the thickness values required for the calculation of piping wall thickness.

Minimum Thickness (Required)

Type the minimum acceptable thickness, inclusive of corrosion allowance, thread tolerance, and mill tolerance, that you want to use in wall thickness calculations for the specified nominal piping diameter. Be sure to include the units, for example, 0.5in or 1.375in.

Nominal Piping Diameter (Required)

Type the nominal pipe diameter to which the thickness data applies.

Nominal Piping Diameter Units (Required)

Specify the units for the nominal pipe diameter value that you entered in the Nominal Piping Diameter column. For example, type mm or in.

PreferredSchedule1 (Required)

Enter the first permissible schedule or wall thickness that you want to use for this piping materials class. Valid schedule short descriptions are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the ScheduleThickness sheet in the ScheduleThickness Short Description column. If the schedule short description in the ScheduleThickness Short Description column in AllCodeLists.xls > ScheduleThickness sheet includes units of measurement then you must also type the units of measurement, such as mm or in.

You can specify up to six preferred schedules or thicknesses for the piping materials class. However, the schedules or wall thicknesses must be listed in ascending order of thickness. In other words, the first preferred schedule or wall thickness value must be the smallest, the last preferred schedule or wall thickness value must be the largest, and the intermediate values must increase in thickness.

PreferredSchedule2 (Optional)

Enter the second permissible schedule code or wall thickness that you want to use for this piping materials class.

PreferredSchedule3 (Optional)

Enter the third permissible schedule code or wall thickness that you want to use for this piping materials class.

PreferredSchedule4 (Optional)

Enter the fourth permissible schedule code or wall thickness that you want to use for this piping materials class.

PreferredSchedule5 (Optional)

Enter the fifth permissible schedule code or wall thickness that you want to use for this piping materials class.

PreferredSchedule6 (Optional)

Enter the sixth permissible schedule code or wall thickness that you want to use for this piping materials class.

Retirement Thickness (Required)

Type the minimum acceptable thickness; exclusive of corrosion allowance, thread tolerance, and mill tolerance; that you want to use in wall thickness calculations for the specified nominal piping diameter. Be sure to include the units, for example, 0.5in or 1.375in.

Spec Name (Required)

Type the name of the piping materials class for which you are defining a thickness data rule. The piping materials class that you enter must be defined on the Piping Materials Classes.

Thread Thickness (Required)

Type the thread thickness that you want to use in wall thickness calculations for threaded pipe. The thread thickness is added to the calculated wall thickness to account for the presence of threads. Be sure to include the units, for example, 0.5in or 1.375in.
