Additional forces, reactions and displacements due to top (soil) load in excess of downward soil reaction (Output Table)

Data description/Result options:

ELEM:

Element number (n)

B-SOILNB:

Additional loading in element number (n) being the difference between top soil load and downward soil reaction from SOILREA

M-SOILNB:

Additional bending moment in element number (n) due to additional loadings B-SOILNB on pipeline

R-SOILNB:

Additional soil reaction on element number (n) due to additional loadings B-SOILNB on pipeline

U-SOILNB:

Additional vertical displacement of element number (n) due to additional loadings B-SOILNB on pipeline

U-NB-TOT:

Total vertical displacement of element number (n)

GAP-NB:

Possibly resulting total gap between pipeline element (n) and soil including gap found in design function 5.

(Note: Additional loading is applied only if:
1. somewhere a gap between pipeline and soil occurs
2. the top soil load SOILNB multiplied by the uncertainty and load factors exceeds the downward soil reaction from SOILREA.)

B-NB+TOP:

Additional loading in element number (n) being the difference between top soil + TOPLOAD and downward soil reaction from table SOILREA

M-NB+TOP:

Additional bending moment in element number (n) due to additional loadings B-NB+TOPL on pipeline

R-NB+TOP:

Additional soil reaction on element number (n) due to additional loadings B-NB+TOPL on pipeline

U-NB+TOP:

Additional vertical displacement of element number (n) due to additional loadings B-NB+TOPL on pipeline

U-NB+TP-T:

Total vertical displacement of element number (n) due to all loads

GAP-NB+TP:

Possibly resulting total gap between pipeline element (n) and soil including gap found in design function 5.

(Additional loading is applied only if:
1. somewhere a gap between pipeline and soil occurs
2. the top soil load SOILNB + the topload TOPLOAD multiplied by the uncertainty and load factors exceeds the downward soil reaction from SOILREA.)

(Note: A gap exists if: (U-Z) - SETLZ*F - SOILNB/KLS > 0. It is possible that an initial (small) gap will disappear due to the additional loadings! In case of no gap, the field is undefined.)
