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

Table description:

The output data table RDPLNEN 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.

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

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.
