b31crvl(maop, d, wth, smys, def = 0.72, depth, l)

Arguments

maop

maximum allowable operating pressure - MAOP, [PSI]. Type: assert_double.

d

nominal outside diameter of the pipe, [inch]. Type: assert_double.

wth

nominal wall thickness of the pipe, [inch]. Type: assert_double.

smys

specified minimum yield of stress (SMYS) as a characteristics of steel strength, [PSI]. Type: assert_double.

allowable depth of the corroded area, [inch]. Type: assert_double.

A

intermediate factor related to the geometry of the corroded area, []. Type: assert_double.
