How to model tee or cross ASME B16.11 fitting

good morning,
I should model an ASME B16.11 class 3000 tee fitting and would like to ask how.

In this case we have: 2 "header and 1" branch, tee threaded type and hex head bushing reduction type, I thought to create the following modeling example:

  

O01: header 2 ", length 1000 mm, thickness 3.2mm;
O02: run (for tee header) 2 ", length 64 mm (note A of the manufacturer's scheme) and thickness 7mm (note G of the manufacturer's scheme);
O03: run (for tee header) 2 ", length 64 mm (note A of the manufacturer's scheme) and thickness 7mm (note G of the manufacturer's scheme);

P01: run (for tee branch) 2 ", length 64 mm (note A of the manufacturer's scheme) and thickness 7mm (note G of the manufacturer's scheme);
P02: reducer 1 "(hex head bushing reduction) length 22 mm
P03: branch 1 ", length 1000 mm

moreover
for the tee type I selected: FITTING; 1,
in the threaded connection points I inserted a user SIF (O01, O03 and P02) see below:


is it a correct approach?
Thank you

  • I would consider only the SIFs required for the treaded connection. There should be one or two nodes on the header with this SIF and one on the branch pipe. These nodes need to on pipe with the same properties and branch or main pipe, You can add thickener or rigid elements to model the fitting but the SIF must be on pipe.
