List of detailed principal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section (Output Table)
The output data table MSTRESS provides a list of detailed principal 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 principal stresses are the result of the summation of stress components resulted from the overall behaviour of the pipeline and the ring behaviour of the cross-section.
The principal stresses are calculated according to Mohr's stress circle.
Five data may appear in the table heading when printed:
•number of element in which stresses have been calculated
•indication that ovalisation redistribution has been applied
•phase number, if applicable.
