a condenser cooling water system with 5100mm diameter pipe has a 2000mm drain connection which is guided upwards and need to be closed with a blind flange. The Flange thickness for the blind as per UG34, SecVII,Div1, equation 2.5,1 works out to about 114mm. Are there codal provisions whereby I can use a thinner Blind flange (say 60 to 70mm) with reinforcing beams? What are the calculations for sizing and spacing the beams?
