A pipe is round tubular section or hollow cylinder. It
can also be used for structural applications but in
industry and engineering discipline the terms are
uniquely defined. Depending on the applicable
standard to which it is manufactured.
Pipe assemblies are almost always constructed with
the use of fittings such as elbows, tees, etc., while
tube may be formed or bent into custom
configurations. For materials that are inflexible, cannot
be formed or where construction is governed by codes
or standards, tube assemblies are also constructed
with the use of tube fittings.
