Assumptions:
1) The Branch and the header pipe intersect perpendicularly.
2) Reinforcement pad material is considered same as the parent header material.
3) Branch pipe and the header pipe are assumed to be of same material.
4) Nominal pipe thickness of header and the branch is reduced by:
12.5 % for all seamless pipes
0.3 mm for all welded pipes,except API grades there 12.5% prevail.
5) Weld Point is the weld no. of the branch pipe to header pipe as given in isometric.
6) Branch pipes with NB 2" and less do not require stub in connection.
7) No pads to be used for A335 P22 and P91 materials. Only Weldolets allowed.

Calculation:
1) Reinforcement pad calculation has been carried out as per ASME B31.1 Para 104.3
2) Reinforcement pad calculation applicable only to stub in connection.
3) Reinforcement requirements should also be checked considering limiting stress at the
branch point both from stress and internal pressure view point. Relevant stress
calculation should be performed using appropriate stress analysis program and the
summary of the output for reinforced tee nodes should be furnished in Annexure 3.

Description of Notes:
Note(1) Reinforcement pad req'd both in stress analysis viewpoint and in internal pressure viewpoint
Note(2) Reinforcement pad req'd not in stress analysis viewpoint, but in internal pressure viewpoint
Note(3) Reinforcement pad req'd in stress analysis viewpoint, but not in internal pressure viewpoint
Note(4) Reinforcement pad req'd neither in stress analysis viewpoint nor in internal pressure viewpoint
