Specification of material and cross-sectional data of tees (Input Table)
The input data table TEESPEC contains all detailed data required for the pipeline behaviour and stress calculations including stress intensification in the tees. See table H.3 from NEN-EN 13480-3 and the notes from table E1 of Appendix E of ASME B31.8.
A tee consists of 2 run elements joining in the connection point and being in a direct line with each other, and one branch element perpendicular to the run elements. At the 3 ends of a tee an IDENT is assigned by the program consisting of the RUN-ident (ident of connecting polygon point of run) with the addition 's', 'e' and 'b'. If the RUN-ident contains already the maximum of 8 characters, a warning is given and no idents are assigned.
Corrosion allowance and fabrication tolerance of a tee are assumed to have the same values as the matching pipe(s).
