Note: if an enhancement or defect has not been added to the program, log an Service request for that enhancement. The more requests logged per an enhancement, the quicker the CAE development team will add that feature to the program.
The following enhancements and defects have already been requested:
Description: Through wall bending stress are caused by the trench loads (earth loads + surface loads) for buried pipes. The calculated through wall bending stresses may also be used to reduce the thermal allowable for ASME codes
Development Project: 9.5
Description: Add graphic to Wave dialog or model window to clearly illustrate information entered into the wave dialog
Development Project: 9.6
Description: In cases where sub sea piping uses jacketed pipe, add option to assign wave / buoyancy loading to segments below water elevation and above the bottom of the sea floor only.
Development Project: TBD
Description: Create a wave forces report for inertia, drag and lift at submerged points.
Development Project: 9.7
Description: Add STAAD wave generator applied to piping and structural members. Also display wave velocities, accelerations and forces requested by many offshore customers
Description: Wave phase range 0 to 180deg calculations e.g by 5 to 10deg including correctly calculating lag between drag and inertia forces dependent on the phase angle.
Description: Option to automatically recalculate imposed displacement for wave phase angle.
Description: Print the wave velocities and accelerations at different heights
Description: Option to delete wave loading - currently must batch out and delete in NTL file
Development Project: 6.30
