Compose pipeline loadings

 

Function ready condition: All 'Optional' input data tables which contain data tested. If table NODALL or FOCUSL is given, table NODALS shall be present as well.

 

Function error condition: 4 error conditions, 2 severe warning conditions, 5 warning conditions, 1 informational message, no messages

Errors:

E42-001:

Nodal load reference "name" not defined.

The nodal load reference name LOADREF specified in input table NODALL or FOCUSL has not been specified in input table NODALS.

table LOADATA will become questioned, with field in question = [Error!]

E42-002:

More than 3 global load references on a node.

In input table NODALL for a node more than three nodal load sets have been specified in the global coordinate system.

table LOADATA will become questioned, with related field NLGLOB3 = [Error!]

 

Or

More than 2 local load references on a node.

In input table NODALL  for a node more than two nodal load sets have been specified in the local coordinate system.

table LOADATA will become questioned, with related field NLLOC2 = [Error!]

 

Or

More than 1 focus load reference on a node.

In input table FOCUSL  for a node more than one focus load set have been specified.

table LOADATA will become questioned, with related field FOCUS = [Error!]

E42-003:

Settlements load component defined without soil.

No soil has been specified in the previous function and one of the input tables SETX, SETY, SETZ or SUBSIDE is present.

table LOADATA and related input table(s) will become questioned (destroy related input table(s) or set function 320 back in order to specify soil parameters).

E42-004:

Focus node coincides with its focus point.

The coordinates of a node where a focus load applies are equal to the coordinates of the focus point.

table LOADATA and related input table FOCUSL will become questioned with related field FOCUS = [Error!]

(In this case the direction of the focus load is indeterminate.)

Severe warnings:

S42-004:

Focus load(s) not directed towards the focus point.

A focus load is not the FX point load from table NODALS.

(This warning is given because it concerns probably an input error. A focus load not directed to the focus point is hard to imagine.)

S42-005:

Different settlements in 'number' connects

The total settlement is different in nodes of a connection point.

(number = number of connection points with different settlements. This warning is given if the difference is greater than 1 % of the largest settlement value or 0.1 mm, whichever is greater.)

Warnings:

W42-001:

Only upward settlements present

All values in table SETZ are specified positive.

(This warning is given because it may be not intended and caused by omitting the minus sign erroneously.)

W42-002:

Only upward subsidences present

All values in table SUBSIDE are specified positive.

(This warning is given because it may be not intended and caused by omitting the minus sign erroneously.)

W42-003:

Row in table 'name' affects no node(s)

The specification in a row of the table SUBSIDE is such that it results in zero values at the nodes of the pipeline.

(This warning can be the result of erroneous length specification in table SUBSIDE and/or the existence of long elements.)

W42-006:

All local focus loads use the fixed local coordinate system.

In table LOADATA all entries in column(s) NLLOC1 (and NLLOC2) are FLOCAL

W42-007:

Vertical soil subsidence has been defined outside the pipeline.

Vertical soil subsidence has been defined outside the pipeline. Any subsidence there will be ignored.

Informational messages:

I42-001:

Soil settlement has been specified over a pipe section without soil.

A soil settlement has been specified over a pipe section without soil.

(The presence of soil is governed by the specification of RVS. For pipeline sections without soil the specified settlement is ignored.)
