The Sheave component relates specifically to the sheave start-up analysis procedure.



This component is not available in PipeLay Starter Edition


If you wish to include a sheave and a return cable in your model, PipeLay will automatically adjust the length of the return cable such that the tension at the return side of the sheave is equal to the tension at the pipeline side times the sheave efficiency. The only input required for the Sheave component is the Sheave Efficiency, which is input using a Properties dialog on the Sheave component, as shown in the figure below.
