Running the Installation Stages
The various parameters required for a PipeLay analysis are specified using an Analysis component. The Analysis component is composed of ten sections, referred to as tabs, namely the Properties tab, the Installation Stages tab, the Parameters tab, the Criteria tab, the Fatigue tab, the Summary Postprocessing tab, the Code Checking tab, the Tabular Report tab, the Progress tab and the Results tab. For the purposes of creating and running the installation stages, this article will focus on the first four tabs as well as the Summary Postprocessing and Progress tabs.
The means to define the abandonment analysis by creating installation stages using the previously developed model is described in the following sections:
‘Creating Installation Stages' describes how the installation stages are created.
‘Running the Analyses’ outlines how to run the analyses.
