Maximum stresses at mid plane of wall per element (material non-linear analysis) (Output Table)

Table description:

The output data table MIDSIGM provides a list of maximum (elastic) stresses at the mid plane of wall over the circumference of the cross-sections where calculations have been performed.

The stresses collected in this table are the result of all internal and external loadings on the cross-sections due to the overall and the local cross-sectional behaviour of the pipeline. The stresses provided are the absolute maximum values over the 144 points over the circumference of the cross-section together with the sign of that extreme value.

Detailed stress data of the last data line of the table are contained in the additional output data table MIDSIG.

The table acts in an accumulative way if the unlock option is used.

Each time Design Function 6.2 (General, Material Non-linear) is restarted, the result data are added for the cross-sections specified in table SECTION with basic data not contained yet in CSGEN/CSLOAD. However, if Design Function 6.2 (General, Material Non-linear) is set back, all data in table MIDSIGM 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 INSIGM.
