List of current/wave velocities and accelerations along pipeline, for submerged elements (Output Table)

Data description/Result options:

ELEM:

Number of submerged element

Z-AXIS:

Z-coordinate of mid point of element

Z-SURFACE:

Z-coordinate of water surface at (X,Y) of mid point of element

CURVEL:

Current velocity at mid point of element

(CURVEL is the horizontal current velocity generated from the specified current profile in the specified direction and not yet resolved into components perpendicular and parallel to pipe axis)

VELOC:

Total water particle velocity at mid point of element perpendicular to pipe axis

(VELOC is the component of the vectorial sum of wave and current velocities perpendicular to the local pipeline axis)

PHI-V:

Angle between the horizontal direction component of VELOC and the positive global x-axis measured from x-axis in positive direction

(PHI-V is defined to lie between 0° and 360°.)

TH-V:

Angle in vertical plane between direction of VELOC and its projection on the horizontal plane measured from horizontal plane in positive (z-)direction

(TH-V is defined to lie between 0° and 360°.)

ACCEL:

Water particle acceleration at mid point of element perpendicular to pipe axis

PHI-A:

Angle between the horizontal direction component of ACCEL and the positive global x-axis measured from x-axis in positive direction

(PHI-A is defined to lie between 0° and 360°.)

TH-A:

Angle in vertical plane between direction of ACCEL and its projection on the horizontal plane measured from horizontal plane in positive (z-)direction

(TH-A is defined to lie between 0° and 360°.)

The number of rows is the number of submerged elements.
