I am working in a project 'installation analysis of long deep sea HDPE pipeline using moses"
i am facing problem during modelling of the pipe -
I am getting this error that the rod solution is not within the tolerence limit and when i am increasing the wtplen of pipe i am not getting this error .
can you please help in solving the above problem .
The common cause of the error is that there is insufficient rod sub-elements to describe the curve needed. When you change the wtplen the curve obviously changes. When defining the rod you have control of the size and location of the sub-elements. Put more sub-elements where the curve is changing directions. In a pipelay analysis the change in direction happens at the stinger, right after the stinger, and just before touch-down. Please put more sup-elements in these areas.
I hope this helps.
