Calculation of the weight of a meter of a round hollow sections made of various metals, weight tables and additional cost calculations by weight, length and other parameters
Formula and calculation methods
Calculating the weight of a pipe made of different metals (steel pipes, stainless steel, copper, etc.) is made on the basis of the data available in the ISO, DIN and other standards. The weight of a round pipe, the assortment of which is not included in the reference available on the site, is calculated online using the formula m = Pi * ro * S * (D - S) * L; Pi is a mathematical constant that expresses the length ratio circle to its diameter, equal to ~ 3.14; ro is the density of the metal from which the round pipe is made in kg/m³; To calculate the specific gravity of 1 meter of a pipe (m), it is necessary to indicate the dimensions of the pipe profile: diameter D in mm, as well as the thickness of the metal from which the pipe is made (wall thickness S) and length L (by default 1 m). The calculation of the theoretical weight rectangular shaped pipe is performed in the same way as a round one, except for part of the formula for determining the cross-sectional area.

The weight of a running meter of a pipe is very often necessary to know to carry out calculations in metal structures. The most common use of a pipe calculator is to determine the mass of a pipe in the purchased batch in order to find out the necessary dimensions of transport for its transportation, as well as to calculate the loads of the future metal structure and the cost of products.
