Barlow's Formula

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Barlow's Formula, abbreviated as Ba, relates to burst pressure, the point just before or at when a pipe or tubing fails under pressure.


Barlow's formula

\(\large{ p_b =  \frac{2 \; S \; t}{d} }\)   


\(\large{ p_b }\) = burst pressure

\(\large{ S }\) = allowable stress

\(\large{ d }\) = inside diameter of pipe

\(\large{ t }\) = pipe thickness
