1. Data
1.1. Known data from client:
Operating Pressure = 10 Barg
Fluid = Water (1000 kg/m3) 1)
Operating Temperature = 5C
Pipe Span = 5 Meter
Axial Bending Modulus (Ex) = 10500 N/mm2
Pipe Design = Dia. 200mm
EST. 20
Te 3.3 mm

Actual Fluid is LPG Propane. However, water is being taken to consider the worst-case scenario for this
project.
1.2. Question
Is 5 meter still acceptable span?

2. Explaination
2.1. Allowable Axial Stress.
Axial stress due to pressure added by axial stress due to bending. The allowable axial stress can be obtained
by divided the LCL value by two and multiply by service factor of 0.67.

2.10. Final Single Span Length

Take the smallest value from 1 and 2 .
1 = 7.9
2 = 5.201
Therefore the single span is .

For this project, the single span length should be used in each of the following situation:
- For pipe system where the joint is not designed to transmit bending force; in this case flanged joints.
- Twice on each side of any change of direction
- Twice on both sides of an anchored valve or pump
- Twice on both sides of an expansion joints or expansion loop.

2.11. Final Continuous Span Length
Take the smallest value from 1 and 2 .
1 = 9.7
2 = 8.9
Therefore the single span is .

For this project, continuous span length may be used for pipe systems where the joints is rigid and capable
to transmit bending force. This continuous span length can be used for adhesive bonded and laminated
pipe systems.

3. Conclusion
Based on the calculation above, the acceptable support span for each type is as follows
1. Single Span Support = 5200mm
2. Continuous Span Support = 8900mm
