List of material and dimensional data of tees (Output Table)
The output data table T-SDATA contains all detailed data required for the pipeline behaviour and stress calculations including stress intensification in the tees. The connection is assumed to be rigid.
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).
In Design Function 5 stress intensification factors are calculated and applied by the program according to table H.3 from NEN-EN 13480-3 and the notes from table E1 of Appendix E of ASME B31.8. The said factors are reported in output table TEEFAC in Design Function 5.
