Loading Options

Ple4Win provides various pipeline loading options to enable the design engineer to adjust to specific operational and environmental circumstances:

  • Pipe deadweight/buoyancy
  • Overburden and traffic load variation
  • Internal and / or external pressure
  • Temperature loading variation
  • External soil deformation variation in horizontal, vertical and longitudinal directions
    (see earthquake fault example)
  • Underground deformations due to mining activities or mine collapses
  • Soil subsidence construction pattern
  • Additional point loads or trains of point loads
  • Focal point loads (especially for offshore pipelines)
  • Backtension due to pipelaying (especially for offshore pipelines)
  • Wave and current loadings (especially for offshore pipelines)
