Toggle Table

Almost all input data tables which specify data along the pipeline can be 'toggled', i.e. the column(s) defining where on the pipeline the subsequent data is to be applied can be changed by the user. This allows the user to choose the most convenient way to enter the point's data.

The following 'toggle states' are defined:

Abbreviation

Name

Description

X-P

X-coordinates

Define the point(s) by the absolute x-coordinate.

Info If the pipeline has several points with the same x-coordinate, the data is applied to all those points!

AX-L

Along pipeline axis

Define the point(s) by the distance from the pipeline origin along the pipeline axis.

Info The distance is relative to the pipeline origin, AX-L = 0 is the pipeline origin irrespectively of its offset.

AX-LP

Along projected pipeline axis

Define the point(s) by the distance from the pipeline origin along the projection of the polygon lines on the horizontal X0Y-plane.

Node

Node number

Define the point(s) by its node number.

Info In this state, it is not possible to define a point between nodes.

Element

Element number

Define the point(s) by its element number.

Info The actual coordinate is the middle of the element. In this state, it is not possible to define a point somewhere else on that element.

Identifier

Identifier

Define the point(s) by its identifier label. You can choose between labels defined in the POLYDIF-table and those additionally defined in the ADIDENT-table.

 

Info For tables SISPRC, PIPES, SUPPORT and ADIDENT (tables from design function 2) an extra 'Δ' is added to the abbreviations because these 'distances' are relative to a REFIDENT column.
