Possibly resulting total gap between pipeline element and soil

Possibly resulting total gap between pipeline element and soil
Ref: Tables Reference > Output Tables > Additional cross-sectional loads [ADDCROS] > Data description/Result options / ID: H610541

Dear Support Staff,

According to the user manual, see below, a gap can be calculated according to U_Z - SETLZ*F - SOILNB / KLS > 0.

This is true in the case when the Z-coordinate of polygon point (n) is on the bottom of the pipeline.
In normal cases and cases when there is a large diameter a user will fill the Z-axis of the pipeline according to the screenshot below.

Does this mean that the gap can be calculated as U_Z - SETLZ*F - SOILNB / KLS - (DOUT / 2) > 0.
If correct than the note in helpfile should point out that the DOUT / 2 is conditional only for the case if Z-coordinate is the axis of the pipeline in POLYDIF.
