# Steel Pipe Calculation Formulas

## To calculate the cross section area of a steel pipe:

A = 0.785di2

where

A = cross-sectional area of pipe (Square Inches)

di = inside diameter (inches)

## To calculate the weight of empty steel pipes:

wp = 10.6802 t (do - t)

where

wp =weight of steel pipe (Pounds per Foot Pipe)

t = pipe wall thickness (Inches)

do = outside diameter (inches)

## To calculate the weight of water in pipes filled with water:

ww = 0.3405 di 2

where

ww = weight of steel pipe filled with water (Pounds per Foot Pipe)

di = inside diameter (inches)

## To calculate the outside surface area of steel pipes:

Ao = 0.2618 do

where

Ao = outside area of pipe - per foot (Square Feet)

do = outside diameter (inches)

## To calculate the inside surface area of steel pipes:

Ai = 0.2618 di

where

Ai = inside area of pipe - per foot (Square Feet)

di = inside diameter (inches)

## To calculate the area of the metal:

Am = 0.785 (do 2 - di 2)

where

Am = area of the metal (Square inches)

di = inside diameter (inches)

do = outside diameter (inches)
