Maximum stresses over the circumference and checks according to the Belgian Law for gas pipelines (Output Table)

Data description/Result options:

ELEM:

Number of element where stress calculations have been performed at mid cross-section

SHOOP-M:

Maximum of circumferential normal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section due to internal overpressure

(The hoop stress is calculated taking into account the outer pipe diameter D and the minimum wall-thickness T-min.)

SXHT-M:

Maximum of longitudinal normal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section ¹

(Maximum of summated stress components SXI+SXU and SXO+SXU.)

SFHT-M:

Maximum of circumferential normal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section ¹

(Maximum of summated stress components SFI+SFU and SFO+SFU.)

MISES-M:

Maximum of equivalent stresses over the circumference of the cross-section according to Von Mises' criterion ¹

SH/SH-A:

Maximum of circumferential normal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section due to internal overpressure divided by the allowable hoop stress

SX/SX-A:

Maximum of longitudinal normal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section divided by the allowable longitudinal stress

SF/SF-A:

Maximum of circumferential normal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section divided by the allowable circumferential stress

SM/SM-A:

Maximum of equivalent stresses over the circumference of the cross-section according to Von Mises' criterion divided by the allowable equivalent stress

The number of rows is the number of specified cross-sections (accumulated).

¹ Both stresses at inner and outer wall face are considered.
