Description

Sheave Efficiency:

The efficiency of the Sheave component.

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

Units: [%]
