List of detailed principal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section (Output Table)

Table description:

The output data table MSTRESS provides a list of detailed principal stresses over the circumference of the cross-section where calculations have been performed.

The stresses are given in 48 equidistant points over the circumference of the cross-section (each 7.5 degrees) starting at the intersection of the horizontal y-axis of the element coordinate system and the cross-section.

The principal stresses are the result of the summation of stress components resulted from the overall behaviour of the pipeline and the ring behaviour of the cross-section.

The principal stresses are calculated according to Mohr's stress circle.

The table relates to the data on the last data line of the maximum stress table MSTRMAX. For explanation of the abbreviations in the stress-component mnemonics see output table PSTRMAX.

Five data may appear in the table heading when printed:

•number of element in which stresses have been calculated

•loadcase name

•line number of tables CSGEN/CSLOAD containing basic data for stress calculations

•indication that ovalisation redistribution has been applied

•phase number, if applicable.
