List of weighing multiplication factors for stress components (Output Table)

Table description:

Through the input data table SWEIGH weighing multiplication factors for each type of stress component can be specified. The factors are shown in this output table CSWEIGH.

For instance it can be distinguished between stress components uniformly distributed and with a gradient over the wall thickness, both in longitudinal and in circumferential direction.

The stress components with a gradient over the wall thickness may be of less importance than the uniformly distributed components due to a possible redistribution of stresses in case of yielding.

If table SWEIGH has not been provided, all weighing multiplication factors are assumed to be 1. If all factors specified in table SWEIGH equal 1, output table CSWEIGH will not be produced.

The weighing multiplication factors are used for equivalent, principal and uniaxial stress calculation only, so for the output data tables CSTRMAX and CSTRESS. All other stress tables remain unaffected.
