    contact area of two touching pipes

    I need to clculate the contact area of two pipes (laying flat) touching each other.
    Thought the best way would be to calculate the area of the two pipes where they
    touch, and then multiply that by the length of the two pipes...
    Any assistace would be appreciated, thanks!

    I need some additional informations:

    Which shape have the cross-sections of the pipes?

    (If the cross-sections are circles then there isn't any common area but only common points)
