I am probably asking for too much from CAESARII through following proposal-
Is it possible to have a provision for applying forces at say bends as below- e.g. slug forces
1. At bend node I want to apply force but at bend, pipe is not turning from X to Y or X to Z or Y to Z i.e. it is not running along X or Y or Z axes.
2. Suppose Node prior to bend is 100 , at bend is 110 and post bend is 110.
3. CAESAR to do the following - Under force / moment menu, user is asked about flow direction i.e. from 100 to 110 and 110 to 120 OR 120 to 110 and 110 to 100 ? User selects the flow direction specifying from and to nodes in those boxes .
4. User is also asked the load value of slug hitting the bend which is calculated by him using standard formula.He puts it in a small box titled as "slug load" or"load".
5. CAESARII to impose forces based on components in X,Y,Z directions by resolving the values of these slug loads and show the same in forces box.This part is for CAESARII to calculate and show.
