    TheNavalArch launches the Stacking Height Calculator (Concrete Coated Pipes)
    This Excel sheet helps you calculate the maximum Stacking height possible for Concrete Coated Steel Pipes when stacked in nested confirguration
    The sheet also checks the strength of the dunnage on which the pipe is resting

    How to use this Excel Sheet
    The user is asked for some inputs to be provided. These include the Steel, Concrete and Corrosion Coating properties, and also the ground & dunnage properties
    The user has to provide all the inputs highlighted in blue.
    Once the inputs are provided, the app will calculate the stacking height limits for various load cases for Steel and Concrete separately
    The final stacking height is the most conservative value from all load cases

    It can be used only for nested stacking configuration
    Coating stress is ignored as it is not expected to be the guiding factor

    1. Roarkā€™s formula for Stress & Strain, 7th Ed, Table 14-4 Case 2
    2. DNV RP-F-105 Sec 6.3.9
