List of detailed summated stresses over the circumference of the cross-section (Output Table)

Table description:

The output data table TSTRESS provides a list of detailed summated stress components and Von Mises' equivalent 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 summated stresses collected in this table are the result of the component stresses resulted from the overall behaviour of the pipeline and of the component stresses resulted from the ring behaviour of the cross-section.

The Von Mises' stresses are calculated according Von Mises' yield criterion.

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

Five data may 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

•indication that Ovalisation Redistribution has been applied

•phase number, if applicable.
