RE: large diameter pipe splice design

Maybe very similar to stack anchorage. See Gaylord and Gaylord steel stacks. It may be wise to taper the sections to the larger diameter then bolt it up.

Subject: large diameter pipe splice design


I need to design some large diameter (12" to 30") pipe splices - with bolted end plates.  The joints will be subjected to both bending and tensile loads.  Can anyone direct me to some design examples?  I have the HSS manual, but they do not have much beyond pure tension splices.


Thanks in advance for your help.
