These fictitious values for t B apply to

a) multicore cables:
whether an inner covering is applied or not;
whether the inner covering is extruded or lapped;
unless a separation sheath complying with 12.3.3 is used in place of or in addition to the
inner covering, when A.2.7 applies instead;
b) single-core cables:
when an inner covering is applied whether it is extruded or lapped.

A.2.5 Concentric conductors and metallic screens

The increase in diameter due to the concentric conductor or metallic screen is given in

If the cross-section of the concentric conductor or metallic screen lies between two of the
values given in the table above, then the increase in diameter is that given for the larger of the
two cross-sections.

If a metallic screen is applied, the cross-sectional area of the screen to be used in the table
above shall be calculated in the following manner:

a) tape screen:

cross-sectional area = n t t t w t

where
n t is the number of tapes;
tt is the nominal thickness of an individual tape, in millimetres;
w t is the nominal width of an individual tape, in millimetres.
Where the total thickness of the screen is less than 0,15 mm then the increase in diameter
shall be zero:
for a lapped tape screen made of either two tapes or one tape with overlap, the total
thickness is twice the thickness of one tape;
