I would like some help clarifying the required thickness calculation in ASME B31.3. Someone pointed out to me that the Pipe Undertolerance (12.5%) must be added to the required thickness calculation in B31.3 . After reading B31.3 para 304.1.1 (a), I think that the code does require this undertolerance be added. Can someone please verify if this is true?
