Summary in English
Many products have a standard name that reflects the size of the product. Although the precise size of an item might vary slightly depending on the intended application or material comprising it, for convenience, a single name is used which only approximates the item's size. For example, a two-by-four is not a piece of lumber that measures two inches by four inches, but it's close. Such dimensions are referred to as 'nominal' dimensions, and, as the dictionary definition implies, are dimensions in name only.

Pipe is one such product that is described by nominal dimensions. There are many varieties of pipe available, and to ensure that all components fit together when developing a piping system, it is important to understand naming conventions when ordering pipe and fittings.
