# Plumbing/Pipe Fitting Calculations

Asked Jul 31, 2007, 10:14 AM — 3 Answers
I am a Project Engineer currently researching the feasibility of developing a specialty calculator focused specifically on the Plumbing/Pipe Fitting industry. I am looking for common calculations, or table look-ups that can be placed within a calculator for easy reference. Off of the top, I could think of Right Angle formulas, circular formulas dealing with areas and radii, pressure conversions, and flow rate calculations. Any additional ideas or references would be appreciated.
