Larry, I'm afraid there's a bit more to it than what you're asking.

I would suggest that you go to one of the API or AWWA design documents
for your information. And I'm not sure how you get hold of that cheaply
- if I were still working I'd send it to you from IHS, but I'm not, so...

Could be worse. Designing STRUCTURAL stainless steel is a real
adventure, as there is (or wasn't as of a couple of years ago) any U.S.
standard for it.
