When selecting the expansion joint specification (compression amount), we will ask how to use the displacement value among the AutoPIPE results.

When analyzing using a flexible joint, AutoPIPE derives the displacement values for the two points to which the joint is applied in the analysis results.
Using the difference between the two values of the resulting displacement values, derive the deformation value of the flexible joint and inquire whether it is correct to use the deformation value when selecting the expansion joint specification.
