List of detailed radial deformations of pipe wall over the circumference of the cross-section (Output Table)

Table description:

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

The deformations 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 deformations are the result of the ovalisation of the cross-section by soil loadings and reactions caused by the overall behaviour of the pipeline and the ring behaviour of the cross-section.

If the Soil Ring-Stiffening Option is Applied, also information is given on the maximum elastic soil resistances that are allowed and the associated soil springs.

The table relates to the data on the last data line of the maximum radial deformation table RDPLMAX.

Five data may appear in the table heading:

•number of element in which deformations have been calculated

•loadcase name

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

•indication that deformation redistribution has been applied

•phase number, if applicable.
