Specification of hydrodynamic force coefficients (Input Table)

Data description/conditions:

NODE:

Node number of data reference point

Numbers must increase

(The coefficients specified at NODE are applicable up to the next NODE specification. Column may be toggled to AX-L, AX-LP, ELEM or IDENT (not to X-P), see toggling data tables.)

DRAG-C:

Hydrodynamic drag force coefficient cd

0. and < 5.

[Default: 0.7]

MASS-C:

Hydrodynamic mass force coefficient cm

0. and < 5.

[Default: 3.29]

LIFT-C:

Hydrodynamic lift force coefficient cl

0. and < 5.

[Default: 1.0]

(Lift force coefficient to be used for pipeline parts at or near the sea bed only. The resulting lift force acts in the positive Z-direction (so upward). For all other cases specify as 0.)
