Specification of maximum longitudinal soil friction along pipeline axis (Input Table)

Data description/conditions:

Identifier: (toggleable)

Identification name of data reference point

Required

F1:

Maximum longitudinal soil friction just before and at data reference point

≥ 0.

F2:

Maximum longitudinal soil friction just after data reference point

≥ 0. / Undefined

(If F2=UNDEFINED it is assumed F2 = F1)

UNCF-L:

Uncertainty factor resulting in lower soil parameter f

≥ 1. / Undefined if UNCF-H is specified

[Default: 1.375]

(If UNCF-L = UNDEFINED it is assumed that UNCF-L = UNCF-H. UNCF-L is used when the uncertainty in table UNCER is set to Low)

UNCF-H:

Uncertainty factor resulting in higher soil parameter f

1. / Undefined if UNCF-L is specified

[Default: 1.375]

(If UNCF-H = UNDEFINED it is assumed UNCF-H = UNCF-L. UNCF-H is used when the uncertainty in table UNCER is set to High)

CFA1:

Friction factor for additional axial friction from lateral soil reaction just before and at data reference point

≥ 0. and 1. / Undefined

(If CFA1 = UNDEFINED , no additional ultimate friction is added to the specified initial friction (see Table Description))

CFA2:

Friction factor for additional axial friction from lateral soil reaction just after data reference point

≥ 0. and 1. / Undefined

(If CFA2 = UNDEFINED ,  it is considered to be equal to CFA1)

VARAR:

Half band width accuracy allowance percentage for soil parameter

> 0. and < 50. / Undefined if F1=F2=0.

[Default: 5.]
