Overview of additional and total support forces due to extra top (soil) load in excess of downward soil reaction (Output Table)

Table description:

The output data table ADDSUP provides an overview list of possible additional support forces caused by the fact that a gap occurs anywhere between pipeline and soil below the pipeline and the top soil load SOILNB or SOILNB+TOPLOAD at the gap multiplied by the uncertainty and load factors exceeds the downward soil reaction from output table SOILREA at the same location.

If above conditions are not met, output table ADDSUP will remain empty.

The difference between the top soil load SOILNB or SOILNB+TOPLOAD and the downward soil reaction from output table SOILREA at the gap is placed on the pipeline as an additional loading. The additional support forces and bending moments multiplied by the general load factor are added vectorial to the moments and reactions found in Design Function 5 and the sum is reported in this output table as well.

The loadcase name and the current value of the general load factor, as well as the phase number, if applicable, are shown in the table heading.
