Find out how much external force would be needed to realign pipe back into original shape?
What will that extra external force applied to put the pipe back in place do to the piping during normal operation?
There is no automated feature to solve this problem it will be an iterative approach.
Question: Find out how much external force would be needed to realign pipe back into original shape?
Suggest to first model the pipe in its current configuration, misalignment.
Afterward, note the distance with which the pipe must be displaced to return back to the original intended configuration.
Using Measurement tool measure the distance between node points
0.38 feet = 4 9/16" = 116mm
Calculate or estimated what concentrated force (ex. 10,000 lbs) would be required to move the pipe back into original layout configuration. Apply that concentrated force to the pipe per load cases (suggest Gr or U1..Un load case). Run the analysis and look at the results.
Keep adjusting the applied force as needed (ex. 16,800 lbs) until the pipe is displace to match pipe alignment.
After finding the force required to move the piping as needed to address the miss alignment, remodel piping layout as intended, and apply the forces found above at the same location but in the opposite direction.
Next run an analysis and review the results.
Note: decide what load case to apply the concentrated forces:
a. Consider using gravity as the load would be applied during the cold condition before operating load cases.
b. Consider using User load case (ex. U1..Un). This way one can easily compare relative combination results to each other to understand how the miss alignment affected analysis results (only downfall of assigning miss-alignment concentrated force to User load case, would be the need to create additional User combinations).
Example: Sus compared to user defined combination Sus+U1
