Specification of temperature difference along pipeline axis (Input Table)

Data description/conditions:

NODE:

Node number of data reference point

> 0 / from nodes list ¹

(Column may be toggled to X-P, AX-L, AX-LP, ELEM or IDENT, see toggling data tables.)

T-ABS1:

Temperature of pipeline just before and at node reference point

None / Required

(The corresponding yield stress is ReT from table ISTROP. The value given for T-ABS1 on the first data line is valid for all points on the pipeline before the reference point, including start node and eventually connected pipeline. see also description of input data table ENDPTS. The temperature value to be provided is referenced to an original 'construction' temperature T-REF. Temperature is assumed to be constant over the cross-section.)

T-REF1:

Reference temperature of pipeline just before and at node reference point

None / Required

[Default: 0.]

(The corresponding yield stress is Re from table ISTROP. At the reference temperature the pipeline is assumed to be without temperature stresses. See also info T-ABS1.)

T-ABS2:

Temperature of pipeline just after node reference point

None / Undefined

(The corresponding yield stress is ReT from table ISTROP. The value given for T-ABS2 on the last data line is valid for all points on the pipeline after the reference node, including end node and eventually connected pipeline. see also info T-ABS1. If T-ABS2=UNDEFINED it is assumed T-ABS2=T-ABS1)

T-REF2:

Reference temperature of pipeline just after node reference point

None / Undefined

(The corresponding yield stress is Re from table ISTROP. See also info T-REF1 and T-ABS2. If T-REF2=UNDEFINED it is assumed T-REF2=T-REF1)
