The problem of distortion of the measurement results of the outer diameter of extra-thin-walled tubes caused by the elastic deformation of tubes from the clamping force of the micrometer was estimated. The analysis of known solutions for estimating the value of elastic deformation of thin-walled cylindrical products under the action of concentrated radial loads is carried out. An experimental estimation of the error during measuring the diameter of thin-walled tubes as a function of the clamping force of the micrometer is made. The generalized formula for calculating the error value has been obtained theoretically. It is established that, for a certain range of thin-walled tubes, the elastic distortion of the diameter due to tube ovalization from the clamping force of the micrometer introduces an error in the result that exceeds the permissible values in accordance with the GOST 8.051-81. Based on the results of the work, the boundaries of applicability of the method for measuring the diameter of extra-thin-walled pipes by micrometers has determined and presented by the nomogram, depending on the tube dimensions, diameter allowable deviations and requirements of GOST 8.051-81.
