Maximum stresses over the circumference and checks according to ASME B31.8 (Output Table)

Table description:

The output table SMAX318 provides a list of maximum hoop stresses, uniaxial stresses and combined (Von Mises) stresses over the circumference of the cross-sections.

The uniaxial and combined stresses are obtained from the summation of stress components resulting from the overall behaviour of the pipeline and the ring behaviour of the cross-section. The calculated stresses have been checked against the criteria set by ASME B31.8.

The stresses provided are the maximum (tensile or compressive) values over 48 points over the circumference of the cross-section (both at inner and outer wall face). Detailed stress data of the last data line of the table are contained in the additional output data table STRS318.

The table acts in an accumulative way if the unlock option is used. See table description of PSTRMAX.

The loadcase name and a possible phase number are shown in the table heading. The same applies for the indication whether or not ovalisation redistribution has been applied.
