The piping Tee is a complex formed piping component. The end-customer is concerned about the strength of the supplied Tees for the project. It was decided to calculate each and every Tee according the European EN13480-3 with the interpretation following the AD2000 (Germany) and the RToD (Netherlands). This calculation is included in the Red-Bag PCC software.

Additional functionality was developed in the software to call the individual calculation from a table with the dimensions of the measured Tees. A template spreadsheet developed by Red-Bag was used by the supplier to enter the measured wall thicknesses and dimensions. The spreadsheet was imported in the software and the calculations could be generated efficiently. With the is approach more than 200 Tees have been calculated. (Fluor)
