FOREWORD

(This Foreword is not part of ASME 616.11-1996.)

The Sectional Committee onthe Standardization ofPipeFlangesand Fittings, B16,


organized in 1920 under the procedure of theAmerican Standards Association (ASA)
appointed a subgroup of Subcommittee No. 3 (now Subcommittee F) to initiate the
standardization of welding fittings in May, 1937. The first meeting of this group was held
later that month, and at its meeting in December, 1938, in New York,itwas agreed to
undertake the standardization of dimensions of socket-welding fittingsand to refer this
project to anew drafting subgroup. One of themostimportant dimensions of this type of
fitting requiring standardization was considered to be the dimension from the centerline of
the fitting to the bottom of the socket, since from the stand-point of the designing engineer,
thisdimension governs thelocation of adjacent pipe with reference to the entire piping
layout. Another important item for consideration was the weldingfillet dimensions.
The drafting subgroup held meetings in Chicago, Detroit, and New York in March, 1939,
andMayand October, 1940, respectively, and at the lastnamedmeeting the completed
draft of theproposedstandardwas discussed and further revisions were suggested. When
applied to the September, 1940, draft, these changes producedtheMay, 1941, draft which
wasprepared for distribution to industry for criticism and comment.
This distribution resulted in a number of helpful comments. The members of the subgroup
agreed by mail thatmany of the changes suggestedshouldbe incorporated intherevised
draft (December, 1941). Progress on theapproval of the standard wasdelayed by the war
after which a few more changes were added to make the proposal acceptable to all concerned.
The revised draft (April, 1946) was then submitted to the members of the sectional committee
for letter ballotvote.
Following the approval of the sectional committee, theproposed standard wasnext
approved by the sponsor bodies, and presented to the ASA with recommendation for approval
as an American Standard. This designation was givenonDecember 9, 1946.
In 1960, it wasagreedthat the standardneededa complete revisionand simultaneously
that it should be expanded to cover threaded fittings and plugs, then covered by MSS SP-
49 and SP-50. ATaskForceworked diligently for four years before aniving at a draft
whichit felt was acceptable. They also found thatratingswere outdated and eliminated
the 4000 lb classes of threaded fittings, assigned pressure-temperature ratings for a number
of materials, and converted the socket weld fitting ratings to 3000 and 6000 lb. Following
approval by the Sectional Committee and Sponsors, ASA approval was granted on January
28, 1966.
Following designation changesofASA to ANSIand Sectional Committee to Standards
Committee, Subcommittee No. 6 began consideration of changes in 1969. Early in 1972,
changes in the pressure class designations, materials,andclarification of wordingwere
agreed upon and submitted for approval. This approachwas granted on June 20, 1973.
The work of development ofthe1980 edition ofB16.11 began in 1975 when the
committee began consideration of comments and proposals for change, whichhadbeen
received. The development procedure was arduous inthatanumber of ballots weretaken
which elicited many additional comments and counter proposals. The major changes included

an expanded scope for better definition, requirements for conformance marking, a nonmanda-
tory annex with provisions for proof or burst testing and the inclusion of metric equivalents.
Following approval by the Standards Committee and Co-Secretariat, final approval by ANSI
was granted on October 6, 1980.
In 1982, American National Standards Committee B16 was reorganized as an ASME
Committee operating under procedures accredited by ANSI. The 1991 edition of the standard,
re-titled ‘‘Forged Fittings, Socket-Welding and Threaded,” incorporated forging material
listed in Table 1of ASME/ANSI B16.34-1988, including Group 3 material which wasnot
previously covered in B16.11. The 1991 edition established U.S. customary units as the
standard. Other clarifying and editorial revisions were made in order to improve the text.
Following approval by the Standards Committee andASME,final approval by ANSI was
granted on March 4, 1991.
In this 1996 Edition, metric dimensions were added as an independent but equal standard
to the inch units. Following approval by the Standards Committee and ASME, this revision
to the 1991 edition of this Standard was approved as an American National Standard by
ANSIon December 16, 1996, withthenew designation ASMEB16.11-1996.
All requests for interpretations or suggestions for revisions should be sent to the Secretary,
B16 Committee, The American Society of Mechanical Engineers, United Engineering Center,
