Overview of additional support forces due to extra top(soil)load in excess of downward soil reaction in output table SOILREA (Output Table)

Data description/Result options:

NODE:

Node number (n)

S-Z-SOILNB:

Additional support force in global Z-direction at node number (n) due to soilnb load

AX-NB-TOT: 1

Total support force in axial pipe direction at node number (n) in LOCAL node coordinate system due to soilnb load

LAT-NB-TOT: 1

Total support force in lateral pipe direction at node number (n) in LOCAL node coordinate system due to soilnb load

PHI-NB-T: 1

Calculated angle of total lateral support force at node number (n) in LOCAL node coordinate system due to soilnb load

M-BEN-NB:

Additional bending moment in a vertical plane at node number (n) due to soilnb load

S-Z-NB+TP:

Additional support force in global Z-direction at node number (n) due to soilnb and topload

AX-NB+TP-T: 1

Total support force in axial pipe direction at node number (n) in LOCAL node coordinate system due to soilnb and topload

LAT-NB+TP-T: 1

Total support force in lateral pipe direction at node number (n) in LOCAL node coordinate system due to soilnb and topload

PHI-NB+TP: 1

Calculated angle of total lateral support force at node number (n) in LOCAL node coordinate system due to soilnb and topload

M-BEN-NB+TP:

Additional bending moment in a vertical plane at node number (n) due to soilnb and topload

Additional loading is applied only if:

1. somewhere a gap between pipeline and soil occurs

2. the top soil load SOILNB (+ the topload TOPLOAD) multiplied by the uncertainty and load factors exceeds the downward soil reaction from SOILREA.

1 The total support forces are composed of the support reactions from Design Function 5 and the additional support forces caused by SOILNB (+TOPLOAD).
