Full Version: Extend buckling check in horizontal plane
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
When there is a nearby trench parallel with the pipeline, horizontal buckling of the pipeline may occur (depending on the length of the trench). This is the case when there is for example a minimum horizontal soil cover.

Is it possible to add a check for buckling in the horizontal plane?

Module Z could be extended.

Currently Ple4Win assumes KLH and RH are the same on both sides (continuum layer) of the pipeline. This might not be the case when there is minimum horizontal soil cover (within the influence area).

Is it possible to extend KLH and RH with a second KLH and RH input table. When only one of them is filled, Ple4Win should assume that they are then the same on both sides of the pipeline.
