Full Version: Extend SOILNB in Soil Model Wizard
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
For large pipeline diametres soil above the curvature of the pipeline increases.

This effect has not been taken into account in the current Soil Model Wizard (this is not mentioned in the helpfile (calculation methodology)).

See Dutch code NEN3650-1:2003 C.4.2.2

This effect is indeed not taken into account in the current Soil Model Wizard. The formula given is optional and the diameter size remains unspecified. Nevertheless, this additional soil burden above the pipeline curvature can simply be added anyway (independent of the pipeline diameter).

This request is assigned to ticket 961. Thanks for the suggestion!
