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

  • Good day to you Mirko Faienza, 

    No your modeling had Tee type set to Fitting and missing an SIF as mentioned above. Your general modeling of pipe lengths appear to be ok.

    Yes, you can use a different pipe property id that considers the thicker fitting wall and apply this pipe property ID to the fitting pipe runs. Just be mindful of the details, Type of tee and be sure to account for all Threaded joint location with a User SIF.
