Maximum stresses over bend circumference due to internal forces as a result of overall pipeline behaviour (Output Table)
The output data table BSTRMAX provides a list of maximum stresses over the circumference of the cross-sections where calculations have been performed.
The stresses collected in this table are caused by the ovalisation of the bend cross-sections due to bending moments in the pipeline and possibly by exceeding the yield stress.
The stresses provided are the absolute maximum values over the 48 points over the circumference of the cross-section together with the sign of that extreme value.
Each time Design Function 6.2 is restarted, the result data are added for the cross-sections specified in table SECTION with basic data not contained yet in CSGEN/CSLOAD/CSWEIGH. However, if Design Function 6.2 is set back, all data in table BSTRMAX are destroyed and the table gets the EMPTY status.
The loadcase name and the phase number, if applicable, are shown in the table heading.
For explanation of the abbreviations in the stress-component mnemonics see output table PSTRMAX.
