List of elements along pipeline axis (Output Table)

Data description/Result options:

ELEMENT:

Element number (n)

(The first element has the number specified in input table ORIGIN)

LENGTH:

Length of element (n)

RATIO:

Length of element (n)/Length of element (n-1)

(First row RATIO=UNDEFINED See remark on extreme RATIO values at input data table POLYDIF)

TYPE:

Element type

Pipe elements
Bend elements
Elastic elements
Tees (Run)
Tees (Branch)
Supports (Pipe)
Supports (Bends)
Supports (Elastic)
Joint elements
"Weak" elements

Straight pipe element
Normal bend element
Elastic bend element
Run element of tee
Branch element of tee
Support element in straight pipe
Support element in bend
Support element in elastic bend
Joint element (no element length)
Weak element (no element length)

RADIUS:

Bend radius of element (n)

(Pipe and weak element RADIUS=UNDEFINED)

THETA:

Angle between direction from bend centre point to element centre point (or between plane of tee) and the horizontal plane

(For pipe and weak elements THETA = blank)

X:

X-coordinate of centre point of element (n)

Y:

Y-coordinate of centre point of element (n)

Z:

Z-coordinate of centre point of element (n)

AX-L:

Length coordinate of centre point of element (n) measured along pipeline axis

(The AX-L value of the start point of the pipeline has been specified in input table ORIGIN (default = 0.))

AX-LP:

Length coordinate of centre point of element (n) measured along projection of polygon lines on the horizontal XOY-plane

(The AX-LP value of the start point of the pipeline has been specified in input table ORIGIN (default = 0.))

 

Info The number of rows is the number of elements ( = number of nodes - 1 ).
