Table - calculation of the weight of the bronze pipe. The size and thickness of the bronze pipe. Inches.
Electrovek-steel company recommends a rather simple system for calculating the mass of one running meter of pipes from different bronze alloys made of different alloys. The evaluation can be performed on the known sizes of the section of the bronze tube in inches.
Principle of determination of the mass of a pipe
Foreign non-ferrous metallurgy (especially in the United States, North America and the United Kingdom) produces bronze tubes made of bronze with dimensions in the English metric system — inches. This makes it difficult to determine the mass of metal. The simplest variant of the estimation is the multiplication of the cross-sectional area of the pipe by the pipe length, and the density of the bronze alloy.
The initial data for these calculations are:
- Actual tube cross-sectional dimensions in inches;
- Length of pipe;
- The density of the bronze alloy from which the pipe is made.
In accordance with the norms of ASTM C22000, the rental of bronze pipes abroad is made in the following range of sizes:
- The outer diameter of the pipe is 5 to 48 inches;
- The thickness of the wall of the pipe is from 0.6 to 25 inches;
- By the length of the rolled metal — from 900 to 5000 mm.
- The density of bronze used for the production of pipes is given in the table:
|Group of bronze alloys||Aluminum, manganese bronze||Silicon bronze||Phosphor bronze||Bronze 505,511||Bronze 519,521||Leaded bronze||Neavy bronze|
|Density, kg / dm 3||7.5… 7.6||8.4… 8.6||8.6… 8.9||8.8… 8.9||8.9… 9.1||9.4||8.2|
The method of determining the mass of the running meter of bronze pipes, whose cross-sectional dimensions are indicated in inches, is proposed by Electrovek-Steel. The supplier guarantees sufficient accuracy of calculations in the absence of calculators of the mass of rolled products from bronze.

For the most common section sizes, the results are given below:
|Outer diameter, in.||Wall thickness, in.|
The method for calculating the mass of one meter of a pipe made of a bronze alloy of a certain brand, which is offered by Electrovek-Steel, makes it possible to estimate the mass of a structure used in the manufacture of bronze pipes. The table is oriented to materials whose density is in the range 8.2… 8.4 g / cm 3. In other situations, usually use correction factors, which determine the proportion of the density of bronze.
