Hello,

What is the minimum allowed pipe length in order to performe a flexibility analisys according to ANSI B31.3?

I suppose this length would be something like 5 to 10 times the pipe's outside diameter because of framed structures linear analysis limitations. Is this correct?

How do the Stress Intensification factor afect it?

Thanks,
