Elongation of pipe steel A106B

Dear All,

My AI have questioned at elongation values of the test specimens.
Follow photo, why is not 22%, instead of 19.73% and where to find “C” value in this formula.

Thanks in advantages.

This formula follows API 5L 46th, subsection 9.3 and table 6, table 7.
Re-check your MTC again?

API 5L: AxC is cross section areas
ASTM A106: A is cross section areas.

19.73% stated in MTC is correct, see note c in table 6 & 7 of API 5L 46th.

So, both the code using the same formula to calculation of elongation.


As per API 5L

ASTM 106


Many thanks @Anthony.Tan
