Extraction By ID - PDS - Help

Plant Design System (PDS) Stress Analysis Interface (PD_Stress)


The Stress Analysis ID is a segment attribute (table 12, column 52) in the design database that you must set prior to running the software. To extract by Stress Analysis ID, you must establish the proper option in the Options File.

Assumptions about Line Names

The following assumptions are made concerning line name changes in the 3D model:

  • Branch components like olets are owned by the header to which they are attached. For an identified line, all of the olets (or olet-like components) are extracted with that line. It is not necessary to break the segment underneath the olet and change the line name so that the header owns it.

  • Branch components like tee's (for example, tee's, 3-way valves) are also owned by the header. The header is defined as the part of the line that contains the run of the tee (from connect point 1 to connect point 2). Again, it is not necessary to break the segment underneath the branch of the component and give it the header line name.
