Maximum strains at mid plane of wall per element (material non-linear analysis) (Output Table)
The output data table MIDEPSM provides a list of maximum elastic, plastic and total strains at the mid plane of wall over the circumference of the cross-sections where calculations have been performed.
The strains 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 strains 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 if applicable.
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 MIDEPSM 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 strain component mnemonics see output table INSIGM.
