Detailed stresses over pipe circumference due to internal forces as a result of overall pipeline behaviour (Output Table)

Table description:

The output data table PSTRESS provides a list of detailed stresses over the circumference of the cross-section where calculations have been performed.

The stresses are given in 48 equidistant points over the circumference of the cross-section (each 7.5 degrees) starting at the intersection of the horizontal y-axis of the element coordinate system and the cross section.

The stresses collected in this table are the result of the internal forces, bending and twisting moments in the pipeline due to the overall behaviour of the pipeline.

The table relates to the data on the last data line of the maximum stress table PSTRMAX. For explanation of the abbreviations in the stress-component mnemonics see output table PSTRMAX.

The following data appear in the table heading:

•number of element in which stresses have been calculated

•loadcase name

•line number of tables CSGEN/CSLOAD containing basic data for stress calculations

•phase number, if applicable.
