Sizing of Gas Pipelines
Full Paper(PDF, 55KB)
In this study, an effective approach for calculating the size of a gas pipeline is presented. The method is simple and does not need any complicated calculations. The proposed approach uses a simple flow formula to derive the diameter, length, flow rate, inlet and outlet pressures. In general, the method tends to give better results of pipe size prediction. The subject of this paper is to present mathematical relationships, based on which Gas pipe size is calculated.
