Detailed stresses over the circumference and checks according to the Belgian Law for gas pipelines (Output Table)

Table description:

The output data table STRSBEL provides a list of detailed stresses over the circumference of the cross-section where calculations have been performed: Hoop, uniaxial and Von Mises stresses.

Moreover stress checks have been performed according to applicable criteria. 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 are the result of the summation of stress components resulting from the overall behaviour of the pipeline and the ring behaviour of the cross-section.

The table relates to the data on the last data line of the maximum stress table SMAXBEL.

Six data may appear in the table heading:

number of element in which stresses have been calculated

loadcase name

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

indication whether or not wall bending has been taken into account

indication that ovalisation redistribution has been applied

phase number, if applicable.
