Detailed stresses over 'bend' circumference due to internal forces as a result of overall pipeline behaviour (Output Table)

Table description:

The output data table BSTRESS provides a list of detailed 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 stresses collected in this table are the result of ovalisation of bend sections caused by bending moments in the pipeline due to the overall behaviour of the pipeline.

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

The following data appear in the table heading:

number of element in which stresses have been calculated

loadcase name

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

phase number, if applicable.
