# V. ASME NF 3000 2004 Pipe

Verify the design of a pipe section used for a beam member per the ASME NF 3000 2004 code.

## Details

The simply supported beam is 50 inches long. The beam is loaded with a 1.5 kip concentrated load at midspan and a uniformly distributed load of 1 kip/in over the entire length.

The member is PIPS 120 pipe section with Grade A36 steel.

## Validation

Maximum shear force, $V ⁢ = P 2 + w L 2 = 1.5 2 + 1.0 ( 50 ) 2 = 25.75 kips$

Maximum moment, $M = P L 4 + w L 2 8 = 1.5 ( 50 ) 4 + 1.0 ( 50 ) 2 8 = 331.25 in⋅kip$

Slenderness ratio = (KL/r) = 9.72 < 300

Section is compact: $O D t = 36.43 < 3 , 300 F y = 91.67$

Allowable bending stress: Fb = 0.66×Fy = 23.76 ksi

Actual bending stress: $f b t z = f b c z = M z I z ( O D 2 ) = 331.25 262 ( 12.75 2 ) = 8.06 ksi$

Stress ratio: 0.339

Shear

From the reference, the shear area:

$A y = 0.25 π r 2 4 - r 1 4 2 r 2 - r 1 2 3 r 2 3 - r 1 3$
where

Shear area: Ay = 6.8 in2

Actual shear stress (at supports): fv = 25.75 / 6.8 = 3.78 ksi

Actual shear stress (at midspan): fv = 0.75 / 6.8 = 0.110 ksi

Allowable shear stress, Fv = 0.4×Fy = 14.4 ksi

Stress ratio: 3.78/14.4 = 0.263

## Results
