fy = 275 N/mm
Allowable bending stress = 275/2

FID of pipe = 1161 mm = 1.161 m


FIR of pipe = 580.5 mm = 0.5805 m

Design pressure = 16 bars = 1600 KN/m = 1.6 N/mm
Flange thickness = 20 mm

From Table 1-4.1, for D/2h = 2.00


k = 1.00
h= 580.5/2.00
= 290 mm

PDk
t = ------------
2SE - 0.2P
= 1.6* 1161/(2* 137.5*1-0.2* 1.6)*1.00
= 6.76 mm allow 15% for thinning due to forming

therefore min. t =6.76/0.85 = 7.96 mm


Say provide 10 mm plate

Welding:
Provide 10 mm fillet weld on 1 side

Unit Weld strength = 115*0.7* 10


= 805 N/mm

Strength of weld = 805*3.14* 1161/1000


= 2936 KN

Total force = 3.14* 1.161^2/ 4* 1600


= 1694 KN < 2936 KN OK
