Specification of loading combination to be taken into account in pipeline calculations   (B31.8 or Belgian Law) (Input Table)

Data description/conditions:

IDENT:

Name for loading combination

None / Required

LOADS:

Type of loading combination

Prescribed names: Operational, Water test

[Default: Operational]

(In case of ASME B31.8, only Operational is available.)

PRESS-F:

Specific load factor for 'PRESS' load component

[Default: 1.]

T-DIF-F:

Specific load factor for 'TEMP' load component

[Default: 1.]

DEADW-F:

Specific load factor for 'DEADW' load component

[Default: 1.]

SETL-F:

Specific load factor for 'SETX/Y/Z' and 'SUBSIDE' load components

[Default: 1.]

NODAL-F:

Specific load factor for 'NODALL' load component

[Default: 1.]

ELBND-F:

Specific load factor for elastic bends

[Default: 1.]

(If 0., bends are assumed to be non-elastic even when specified as elastic in table POLYDIF.
If > 0., elastic bends must have been specified in table POLYDIF, moreover, a geometrically non-linear module (N or L) must be present and the pipeline behaviour analysis must be geometrically non-linear (GEO-NLN), if not, a function error will occur.)

WAVC-F:

Specific load factor for 'WAVE' load component

[Default: 0.]

 

Info For all (specific) component load factors:

Condition:        ≥ 0. at least 1 component load factor must be non-zero.

Info:                If a component load factor is > 0., a corresponding non-zero load component must have been specified in the previous functions.

Max/Min:        1/1 rows
