List of elements with primary membrane stresses (Output Table)

Data description/Result options:

ELEM:

Element number

(NO)SOILNB:

Indication whether element is to be characterised as a primary membrane stress element in case of above ground pipeline (section) or when SOILNB only exists

SOILNB+TOPLOAD:

Indication whether element is to be characterised as primary membrane stress element  when SOILNB and TOPLOAD exist

Info Possible indications:

- empty (blank)

 

No primary membrane stress element

- Primary (free)

 

Primary membrane stress element with gap or above ground

- Primary (in soil)

 

Primary membrane stress element below ground

- Primary (support)

 

Primary membrane stress element next to a support

- Non-Primary (elastic)

 

Elastic bend element (is always a non-primary membrane stress element)

- Weak

 

Weak element

- Joint

 

Joint element

 

Info The length of the pipe span for the combination of SOILNB and TOPLOAD can differ from the one for SOILNB only, because a part of the span at start and/or end may disappear due to additional loading by TOPLOAD.
