Not quite enough information supplied. Is it the circumference of the opening you need?

Linear distance is distance as if the object was along a straight line, without any care to the width or height.

Usually that would be the length of the pipe, but you mentioned the opening so that may need more explanation.

Circumference is pi times diameter.
Pi is an irrational numbner (infinite number of decimal digits) but is approximately 3.14159. Circumference is 3.14159 x 16", or about 50.27 inches.

I'm confused!

Pipe weight (related to wall thickness) shouldn't be a factor unless the annulus centerline is needed. I can't imagine you need that.

Are you asking about diameter of the pipe when you say length?

12" Std pipe actually has an outside diameter of 12.75 in., but it can be 40 ft long. The circumference of 12.75 in. diameter pipe is: 12.75 in. * PI = 40.055 in. Half the circumference would be 20.027 in.

What dimension are you asking about when you say 16" length?

Or . . . are you asking about the circumference of an ellipse?
