Detailed stresses over 'bend' circumference due to internal forces as a result of overall pipeline behaviour (Output Table)
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 following data appear in the table heading:
•number of element in which stresses have been calculated
•phase number, if applicable.
