List of calculated overall external support reaction forces on pipeline (Output Table)

Table description:

The output data table SUPREA provides the external reaction forces at supports at the nodes of the pipeline as they result from calculations.

The support reaction forces are given in both the overall GLOBAL coordinate system (S-X/S-Y/S-Z and MS-X/MS-Y/MS-Z) and the LOCAL nodal coordinate system (S-AX/S-LAT/PHI-LAT and MS-TORS/MS-BEN/PHI-MS). (For a description of the local nodal coordinate system see Coordinate systems.)

The lateral support reaction force S-LAT is provided as a vector. The direction of the vector is contained in PHI-LAT. The same applies for MS-BEN and PHI-MS. The support reactions are the forces acting on the pipeline. Loadcase name, analysis type, iteration and phase number, if applicable, are shown in the table heading.

If there is no soil and the geometry calculations are linear, the iteration number is zero.
