1 Introduction
1.1 General Description
The PDMS PROPCON (PROPerties CONstructor) module is used to input and
edit data within the Properties database (DB).
Properties data was initially used by PDMS to hold those properties of
components and materials which may be needed for stress analysis or safety
auditing of all or part of a design. In recent versions its use has been extended
to include data such as the material densities needed by the DESIGN structural
applications for calculating weights and centres of gravity of steelwork items.
PROPCON uses the general constructor syntax, as found in DESIGN,
PARAGON, etc., but the principal commands are repeated in this manual for
convenience.

Introduction

Version 11.6SP1

2 Properties Data
2.1 Setting Up a Properties Database
A Properties database (DB) is created in the ADMIN module in the same way as
a Design or Catalogue DB. The DB will be assigned, typically, to the team
responsible for pipe stressing. The syntax for creating a Properties DB is:
>-- CReate -- DB -- teamname/dbname -- PROP -->
Before the Properties DB can be used, it must be added to a multiple database
(MDB).
2.2 Description
Full details of the Properties database structure and of the elements held
within it are shown in Appendix B. The types of data stored may be grouped
into the following categories:
2.2.1 Design Layout Data
A full description of the geometry and fitting of pipework is needed. This
already exists in the Design DB.
2.2.2 Material Property Data
This consists of expansion coefficients, Youngs modulus of elasticity etc., for
each material. This includes the actual pipe material, such as steel, and the
fluid, such as water, which the pipe contains.
2.2.3 Case Data
Case data consists of the particular values of temperature and pressure that
can be applied to a pipe at any one time. A pipe may have several cases if the
temperature and/or pressure parameters vary.
VANTAGE PDMS PROPCON Reference Manual 2-1
Version 11.6SP1
Properties Data
2.2.4 Component Data
The Catalogue does not give extensive information on components, only size
attributes. The Properties DB component data element can be referenced from
individual specification components and consists of physical data, such as
weight, flexibility factors, wall thickness, etc.
2.2.5 Constraint Data
This constraint data is split between the Properties DB and the Design DB. In
the Design DB, an attachment point is created having a reference attribute
which points to a constraint in the Properties DB. This constraint has data
referring to forces, moments etc.
2.2.6 Run Data
This is the information needed to carry out a run that is not held elsewhere in
PDMS and could consist of a header card, for instance, which would contain a
persons name and the type of analysis to be performed. This run data will
depend on the type of stressing package interfaced to the Properties DB.
2.3 Material Property Data
2.3.1 Hierarchy Description
The Material World (MATW) comes below World in the Properties hierarchy. It
is purely an administrative element that groups material data together.
Below MATW are two elements: SOLI and FLUI. The material properties are
subdivided such that SOLI holds data for the pipe itself and FLUI holds data
for the fluid within the pipe.
2.3.2 Material Properties
The pipework material properties associated with flexibility and stress analysis
are as follows:
POISSONS RATIO
COEFFICIENT OF EXPANSION
YOUNGS MODULUS
ALLOWABLE STRESS
DENSITY
There can also be three general properties known as A, B and C properties.
These are used to store any additional properties that may be needed. Each of
these may be a function of temperature and/or pressure.
2-2 VANTAGE PDMS PROPCON Reference Manual
Version 11.6SP1
Contents
To enable the properties to be stored against temperature and pressure values,
the data is stored in a tabular format which incorporates a table element for
each type of property: TYOU (table of Youngs modulus values), TSTR (table of
allowable stresses), etc.
Below these are spot elements, SYOU, SSTR etc. The spot elements have
attributes PRES and TEMP where values of pressure and temperature may be
input. Each element also has an attribute to allow the input of the
corresponding value of its own property; for example, SYOU has an attribute
YOUN where a value of Youngs modulus may be stored, SAPR has an attribute
APRO where a value of APROPERTY may be stored, and so on.
At different temperatures and pressures, the value of Youngs modulus may
vary, and so more spot Youngs modulus elements (SYOUs) may be created with
different temperature, pressure and Youngs modulus values. Thus the
attributes settings for a specific SYOU might be:
TYPE SYOU (Spot Youngs modulus)
NAME
LOCK
OWNE
TEMP 20 (Temperature)
PRES 101EX+3 (Pressure)
YOUN 210EX+9 (Youngs modulus value; see Chapter 6 for a
description of the exponential format of numbers)
The table that these spot properties create can then be used by a suitable
stressing package. The table effectively forms a graph with the spot property,
temperature and pressure. From this table, therefore, the stressing package can
interpolate other values it may need.
The PDMS unit for TEMP is degrees centigrade and for PRES and YOUN is
N/m
2
. Therefore, this material at a temperature of 20 degrees centigrade and a
pressure of 101 kN/m
2
would have a value for Youngs modulus (E) of 210
GN/m
2
. For a change of units, see Chapter 4.
Note: FLUI does not have the elements relating to allowable stress, nor
Poisson's ratio, i.e. TSTR, TPOI, SSTR and SPOI.
The elements SOLI and FLUI have an attribute DESC (Description) which is a
120-character text string.
The table elements (TPOI, TEXP etc) have an attribute PQUA (Property
Qualifier) which is some qualification under which the property applies. There
is provision for 4 characters.
The table elements also have an attribute SREF (Source Reference). This may
be the name of a book from where the spot values were obtained and is a 12-
character text string.
The elements TAPR, TBPR and TCPR also have an attribute PNAM (Property
Name) which is a 12-character text string.
At the same level as the table elements is an element TEXT which has an
attribute STEX which is a 50-character text string.

Version 11.6SP1
Properties Data
2.3.3 Pointers from the Design DB and Specification
The Specification Component (SPCOM) has attributes MATR and FLUR. These
are material reference and fluid reference, which point to the pipe material
(SOLI) and the fluid within the pipe (FLUI), respectively.
In the Design DB, Pipes and Branches also have these attributes MATR and
FLUR. If these are set, the references from the Specification Component are
ignored, but if they are unset, the references from the Specification Component
are used.
2.4 Case Data
2.4.1 Hierarchy Description
The Case World (CASWL) is a member of World in the Properties hierarchy and
is an administrative element used to keep all Case data together.
Below CASWL come two elements, Case (CASE) and Case Type (CAST). CASE
may be directly below CASWL or may come under CAST.
CAST is an administrative element to further group cases if there are several of
them and they can be split into case types.
A Case has of a number of attributes which describe different conditions to
which a pipe is subjected. For every run of a pipe there may be a number of
cases.
CASE has the following attributes:
TYPE CASE
NAME
LOCK
OWNE
WEFA (weight factor)
WPRE (wind pressure)
WIFA (wind factor)
IPRE (internal pressure)
RPRE (reference pressure)
PTEM (pipe temperature)
RTEM (reference temperature)
TGRA (temperature gradient)
SHOC (shock load vector)
APPL (application)
The attributes WEFA, WPRE, WIFA, IPRE, RPRE, PTEM, RTEM and TGRA
are all real numbers; SHOC is a 3-element real array; APPL is a 20-character
text string.

2.4.2 Pointer from the Design DB
The elements Pipe and Branch in the Design DB have an attribute Case
Reference (CASR) which points to a Group of Cases applicable for that pipe in
the Properties DB. The use of Groups for Cases is described in Chapter 6.
2.5 Component Data
2.5.1 Hierarchy Description
The Component World (CMPWL) is a member of World in the Properties
hierarchy. It is an administrative element to keep component data together.
Below CMPWL there is Component Type (CMPT), which is also a purely
administrative element. Under CMPT can be found Component Data (CMPD)
and Tube Data (TUBD).
Insufficient data is held in the Catalogue and Design DBs about components for
a stressing run to take place. Therefore further data can be stored as attributes
of CMPD or TUBD.
CMPD has the following attributes:
TYPE CMPD
NAME
LOCK
OWNE
OUTD (outside diameter)
ACBO (actual bore)
BTOL (bore tolerance)
WTOL (weight tolerance)
CWEI (component weight)
CIWE (component insulation weight)
WDIA (wind diameter)
SHAP (shape factor)
RINE (rotational inertia vector)
SIF (stress intensification factor)
PRFC (pressure factor)
SDTH (saddle thickness)
CORA (corrosion allowance)
EFAC (Youngs modulus factor)
BFLE (bend flexibility)
DFFL (displacement force flexibility)
DMFL (displacement moment flexibility)
RMFL (rotational moment flexibility)
MRKR (component marker)
The element TUBD has the same attributes, except that it does not have DFFL,
DMFL or RMFL and, instead of having CWEI and CIWE, it has UWEI, which is
VANTAGE PDMS PROPCON Reference Manual 2-5
Version 11.6SP1
Properties Data
weight per unit length (unit weight), and UIWE, which is weight per unit
insulation.
The attributes OUTD, ACBO, BTOL, WTOL, CWEI, CIWE, WDIA, SHAP,
PRFC, CORA, EFAC, BFLE are real numbers; RINE, SIF and SDTH are 3-
element real arrays; DFFL, DMFL and RMFL are six- and nine-figure flexibility
matrices.
2.5.2 Pointer from the Specification
The Specification Component (SPCOM) has a reference to the Component Data
or Tube Data relevant to that particular component. This reference is called
CMPR (Component Reference).
2.6 Constraints Data
2.6.1 Hierarchy Description
The Constraint World (CONW) is a member of World. It owns Constraint Type
(CONT), which is an administrative element that groups constraint data into
types. Below CONT is Constraint (CONS). This element has attributes that
store particular conditions to which a constraint may be subjected.
CONS owns the Case Table element (TCAS). This is a reference to a particular
case for which the constraint data is applicable.
One constraint may own more than one TCAS. This could mean that the
attribute of constraint is valid for more than one case (for different
temperatures and pressures etc.).
If there is no TCAS, then this could mean that the attributes of CONS are valid
for any particular case.
CONS has the following attributes:
TYPE CONS
NAME
LOCK
OWNER
APPL (application)
FORC (applied force (load))
MOME (applied moment)
DISP (applied displacement)
ROTA (applied rotation)
DLIM (displacement limits)
RLIM (rotation limits)
FLIM (force limits)
MLIM (moment limits)
DFLF (translational flexibility factor - distance/force)
RFLF (rotation flexibility factor)
2-6 VANTAGE PDMS PROPCON Reference Manual
Version 11.6SP1
Contents
FCOE (friction coefficient)
CPUL (cold pull (translational))
CPUT (cold pull (twist))
The attribute APPL (application) is a 20-character text string; FORC, MOME,
DISP, ROTA, FLIM, MLIM, DFLF, RFLF, FCOE, CPUL and CPUT are 3-
element real arrays; DLIM and RLIM are 6-element real arrays.
The element CONT has an attribute RTYP (Restraint Type) which is a 12-
character text string.
The element TCAS (Case Table element) has an attribute CASR (Case
Reference) which references a case applicable for that constraint.
2.6.2 Pointer from the Design DB
In the Design DB, Pipe has a legal member called ATTA (Attachment Point).
This element has an attribute CSTR (Constraint Reference) which points to a
constraint in the Properties DB, and therefore to all its attributes and
conditions.
2.7 Run Data
2.7.1 Hierarchy Description
The Run World (RUNW) is a member of World and owns the element RUN.
RUN is a text element with an attribute DATE, which is a 9-character text
string, and UNAME (User Name), which is a 12-character text string. RUN
owns Card (CARD) which has attributes Card Type (CATY) and Card Text
(CTXT), which is a 120-character text string.
These text attributes are used to store information necessary to run a specific
stress analysis package, e.g. a header card containing a persons name, type of
analysis to be performed, etc.

3 Some General Commands
3.1 Introduction
The following commands are common to most PDMS constructor modules.
A brief description of them is given in this manual, but for a more detailed
description see the VANTAGE PDMS DESIGN Reference Manual.
CLOCK
COPY
DELETE
END
GOTO
INCLUDE
LOCK
NAME
NEW
OLD
QUERY
RENAME
REORDER
SAME
UNLOCK
UNNAME
Reference Numbers
Exit from PROPCON
3.2 The CLOCK Command
The CLOCK syntax is available, as in all constructor modules.
>--- CLOCK ---+--- INITialise --. .-----------------.
| |/ |
--- READ --------*--- ELapsed --. |
| | |
|--- CPU ------| |
| | |
|--- PAGing ---+----
|
|-- ALL --.

---------|-- TIMEs --.
| |
-----------+-- nl -->
VANTAGE PDMS PROPCON Reference Manual 3-1
Version 11.6SP1
Some General Commands
3.3 The COPY Command
Elements may be copied using the COPY command.
The basic command form is:
>--- COPY --- <gid> --->
This copies the attributes of element <gid> into the Current Element (which
must be the same as element <gid>) and duplicates any offspring of element
<gid>.
3.4 The DELETE Command
Elements are deleted using the DELETE command (for deletion of groups, see
Section 6, Use of Groups).
The simplest command form is
>--- DELETE --- noun --->
which deletes the Current Element and all its members and removes its
reference from its owner list.
After deletion, the owner of the Current Element becomes the Current Element.
>--- DELETE --- noun --- MEMbers --->
will delete all the members of noun and any offspring members, but not noun
itself.
3.5 The END Command
The END command makes the owner of the Current Element the new Current
Element.
3.6 The GOTO Command
Wherever an element has a reference to another element, the command GOTO
may be used instead of typing the reference elements name explicitly.
For example, the element TCAS has an attribute CASR (Case Reference).
The referenced Case may be accessed by typing the Case name, but can also be
accessed by:
3-2 VANTAGE PDMS PROPCON Reference Manual
Version 11.6SP1
Commands Used in MONITOR

GOTO CASR
3.7 The INCLUDE Command
Moving an element from one list to another is done using the INCLUDE
command:
>--- INClude --- <gid> ---+--- BEFore ---.
| |
|--- AFTer ----+--- <gid> ---.
| |
----------------------------+--->
Because the INCLUDE command could cause problems if used between two DBs
in an MDB, its use has been restricted to operating only within one DB in an
MBD.
3.8 The LOCK Command
To prevent any accidental deletion of elements, they may be locked; under these
conditions, they cannot be modified in any way.
The Current Element may be locked using:
>--- LOCK --->
Sometimes it may be desirable to lock the Current Elements offspring as well
as itself. This may be done using:
>--- LOCK --- ALL --->
3.9 The NAME Command
An element may be named by
>--- NEW --- noun --- name --->
but can be set or changed by
>--- NAME --- name --->
Note: All PDMS names must have a slash (/) as a prefix.
VANTAGE PDMS PROPCON Reference Manual 3-3
Version 11.6SP1
Some General Commands
3.10 The NEW Command
Elements are created using the NEW command. The simplest command form is:
>--- NEW --- noun --->
An element of type noun is created and inserted in the Current List
immediately after the Current List Position and becomes the new Current
Element (noun must be a legal member type of the Current Element).
It is possible to add a name and/or attributes after the NEW command on the
same line, or they may be input as separate lines.
For example:
NEW TUBD /ABC OUTD 120
(name) (attribute)
3.11 The OLD Command
The OLD command can be used to ensure that, when accessing an element, it is
of the type required, e.g.
OLD TUBD /XYZ
If element /XYZ is not a TUBD, then the following message appears:
INCORRECT TYPE OF ELEMENT
- LINE ABORTED
In other words, because /XYZ is not a TUBD, /XYZ has not become the Current
Element and the Current Element remains as it was.
3.12 The QUERY Command
Any attribute of any element may be queried using the QUERY command. All
the attributes of an element may be queried using
>--- Query --- ATTributes --->
but some may not be in a readable form and may need to be queried
independently.
Members of an element may be queried by:
>--- Query --- MEMbers --->
For a full list of what can be interrogated using the QUERY command, see the
<quera> graph in Appendix A.

Version 11.6SP1
Commands Used in MONITOR

3.13 The RENAME Command
The RENAME command may be used when copying elements with members to
save time having to name the copies later. This can only be used effectively if all
the elements have been named with one part of their name common to all
elements, e.g.
CAST /C1
members CASE /C1/1
CASE /C1/2
CASE /C1/3
CASE /C1/4
The /C1 part of the name is present in all elements.
If the CAST is to be copied, the following syntax may be used:
NEW CAST COPY /C1 RENAME /C1 /C2
This will copy the CAST and its members and where /C1 occurs in the name it
will be replaced with /C2, giving
CAST /C2
members CASE /C2/1
CASE /C2/2
CASE /C2/3
CASE /C2/4
This will be the new CAST and its case members with the same attributes as
/C1 but named /C2.
3.14 The REORDER Command
The order of elements within the Current List may be changed using the
REORDER command:
>--- REOrder --- <gid> ---+--- BEFore ---.
| |
--- AFTer ----+--- <gid> --->
The first element specified is positioned before or after the list position of the
second element.
3.15 The SAME Command
The SAME command makes the previous Current Element the new Current
Element (previous in time, not list position); that is, it cancels the effect of the
most recent change of Current Element.
VANTAGE PDMS PROPCON Reference Manual 3-5
Version 11.6SP1
Some General Commands
3.16 The UNLOCK Command
Elements may be unlocked using:
>--- UNLOck --+-- ALL ---.
| |
----------+--->
3.17 The UNNAME Command
An element can be unnamed, i.e. its name removed, leaving only the PDMS
system reference number, by:
>--- UNName --->
3.18 Reference Numbers
Every element created within PDMS is automatically given a system reference
number such as:
=83/201
Elements can be identified by this and/or their userdefinable name. It is not
essential to define a name, but this usually aids easy operation.
3.19 Exit from PROPCON
It is possible to exit from PROPCON by typing either MONITor or any other
PDMS module name. This will update the database with any new data created
or deleted and will then change to the named module.
If the database is not to be updated, exit from PROPCON by typing
QUIT module_name

Version 11.6SP1

4 Use of Groups
Groups are used in PROPCON to group Cases together. This is done to save
space and time spent creating Cases. Several Cases with the same attributes
may be reproduced in different Case Types if groups are not used.
The syntax for adding or removing cases from a group is:
>---+--- ADD ------. .-----------.
| | / |

5 Exponential Numbers
Exponential numbers may be input into PROPCON with the following syntax:
>--- attribute --- value --- EXponential --- exponent_value --->
For example:
YOUN 210 EX 9

means that the value of Youngs modulus input is 210 x 10
9
.
Values may be input non-exponentially subject to a maximum number of 11
digits. Use of the EX command allows larger numbers to be input, depending on
the particular machine used.
Negative exponential numbers may be input, if required, by using a minus sign.
The default is positive.
PROPCON will output numbers in exponential format if the number is large
enough or small enough.

A PROPCON Syntax Graphs
A.1 Introduction
This appendix contains the legal command and interrogation syntax graphs
applicable to the PDMS PROPCON module.
A.2 Conventions
The following conventions apply to the syntax graph presentation:
(a) Graphs of primary importance are listed first. The remaining graphs are
listed in alphabetical order.
(b) All graphs are individually identified by name. Names are composed of
alphabetic characters written in lowercase and enclosed between angled
brackets, e.g. <gid>.
(c) Commands to be input are written in a mixture of uppercase and lowercase
letters when the commands can be abbreviated. The uppercase letters define
the minimum permissible abbreviation.
e.g. TERminal
This command may be input as:
TER, TERM, TERMI, up to the full complement of characters.
(d) Graphs are normally read from top left to bottom right. Any junction (as
shown below) allows you to input any of the commands to the right of the
junction:
>---+--- A ----.

(e) When a loop back is included in the graphs, the command(s) in the loop may be
repeated as required.
