Barlow's Formula Calculator
Barlow's Formula - An equation which calculates the relationship of internal pressure to allowable stress, nominal thickness and diameter of pipe.

The formula is: P = (2*S*t) / D, where:
P = internal pressure, psig
S = unit stress, psi
t = nominal wall thickness, in.
D = outside diameter of pipe, in.
Peter Barlow
Self-educated, Peter Barlow (1776-1862) became assistant mathematics master at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, in 1801. He published numerous mathematical works, including New Mathematical Tables (1814). Later known as Barlow’s Tables, this compilation of factors and functions of all numbers from 1 to 10,000 was considered so accurate and so useful that it has been regularly reprinted ever since.
