Although the reinforcement for openings is checked in accordance with design / construction standard when thinning was observed in T-pipes, this evaluation becomes too conservative or requires much time and effort.

This paper describes additional parametric study results and proposes a guideline for thickness management of wall thinning T-pipes. On the other papers related to this project, the experiment and numerical simulation results are reported. This paper referred these results and performed further investigation.
