Stress/Strain Module

Functional characteristics of the STRESS/STRAIN (S) module.

Detailed stress calculation in selected pipe cross sections.

Stresses are calculated in 48 equidistant points over the circumference at the inner and outer wall side.

Input facilities:

neutral top soil weight along pipeline axis
extra surface loading along pipeline axis
various subsoil bearing angle functions depending on ratio of subsoil reaction and bearing capacity of the soil, variable along pipeline axis
lateral horizontal soil support for vertical soil loadings, variable along pipeline axis.

 

Output facilities:

stress components resulting from internal/external pressure (hoop stress)
stress components resulting from internal forces, bending and twisting moments in the pipeline, taking into account pressurized toroidal shell behaviour at the pipe bends
stress components resulting from local soil reactions distributed over the circumference of the pipe cross section, taking into account the "pressurized ring rerounding" effect.
summation of corresponding stress components
determination of principal stresses according Mohr's circle
determination of equivalent stresses according Von Mises/Huber-Hencky yield criterion
overview of governing stress components and overall stresses.
overview of governing Mohr, Tresca, Von Mises and uniaxial stresses.
