Perform cross-section calculations

 

Function ready condition: - if input data table SECTION is tested.

 

Function error condition: 1 error condition, 2 warning conditions, 4 messages

Errors:

E600/1:

Data missing, recalculate from DF5.

Internal data calculated in design function 5 can not be found. Please set back design function 5 and recalculate from there.

(This error can occur after updating a project from a previous version of the program. If only design function 6 is recalculated after the update, not all required data might be present. )

Warnings:

W600/1:

Ovalisation is 'value' % of diameter

The ovalisation of an element exceeds 10 % of the diameter.

(An ovalisation exceeding 10% is considered to be very large.)

W620/1:

Calculated stress > allowable stress

One of the calculated check stresses in table CSTRMAX exceeds S-ALLOW specified in table SECTION and elaborated in output table CSGEN.

W620/3:

Axial buckling strain gt critical one

The calculated maximum axial buckling strain is greater than the critical buckling strain.

Messages:

M620/1:

Weak/joint element(s) not calculated

Only WEAK elements have been specified in (a row of) table SECTION.

M620/2 :

No elements calculated

Only WEAK elements have been specified in table SECTION.

M620/3:

All elements already calculated

All pipeline cross-sections specified in table SECTION are already calculated including the detailed stresses of the last specified element in table SECTION.

M620/4:

Topload = 0.

The TOPLOAD indicator in table SECTION has been set to YES and (the TOPLOAD-value = 0. and the Loading  Redistribution option is OFF or no table TOPLOAD exists).

in output table CSLOAD the relevant TOPLOAD-value will become indicated .0 or UNDEFINED if no table TOPLOAD exists.
