Does anybody know the derivation of (B31.3, paragraph 304.5.3) the minimum required thickness for the following blank equation: t = d * ((3*P /16*SEW) + c)^0.5, which can be further simplified to (assuming E = 1, W = 1, and no corrosion allowance) t = d(3P/16S)^0.5. So far I managed to get t = PD/4S (not sure if the approach is correct). Thanks in advance.
