Specification of cross-sections to be calculated according to ASME B31.8 (Input Table)
Number of first element where stress calculations have to be done
≥ 1 / from elements list / ²
Number of last element where stress calculations have to be done
≥ 1 / from elements list / Undefined / ²
(If EELEM = Undefined, it is assumed that EELEM = SELEM)
Indicator whether TOPLOAD has to be taken into account in stress calculations
Design factor according to art. 841.11 of ASME B31.8
≥ 0.4 and ≤ 0.8
Longitudinal joint factor according to art. 841.11 of ASME B31.8
≥ 0.6 and ≤ 1.0
Temperature derating factor according to art. 841.11 of ASME B31.8
≥ 0.867 and ≤ 1.0
Long term: Loads of long duration
Short term: Occasional, non-periodic loads of short duration
Axial restraint condition according to art. 833.1 of ASME B31.8
Restrained: Pipeline for which soil or supports prevent axial displacement or flexure at bends.
Unrestrained: Pipeline that is free to displace axially or flex at bends.
¹ Column may be toggled to X-P, AX-L, AX-LP, NODE or IDENT, see Data table toggling. If the table is toggled and the number/value in both columns is the same, then the element nearest to the specified value will be calculated unless this is a WEAK element.
