Specifies the type of ocean zone data to follow.
The type of ocean zone data to be input following this command:
Define by a component.
Define by Z levels.
Associate an internal pipe or pipes with an external pipe.
The ocean zone name. If no name is specified, the program assigns one.
Zonetype = COMP, the
required name of a component.
Zonetype = PIP, the required name of an internal pipe component.
Zonetype = PIP, the
required name of an external pipe component.
The OCZONE command specifies the type of ocean zone data to follow (component, Z-level, or internal pipes associated with an external pipe). An ocean zone is a local space where you can override global ocean-loading parameters.
Names specified for
CompNameExt can consist of up to 32 alphanumeric characters. The name cannot
contain punctuation, special characters, or spaces.
Zonetype = COMP, the zone is
defined by a component. Only the elements in the component are affected
by the local parameters. A partial component can be defined as the zone via the Z input on the OCTABLE command.
Zonetype = PIP, the zone is prepared
for a special configuration of pipes. It associates an internal pipe
or pipes with an external pipe to remove the hydrodynamic effect on
the internal pipe. Only hydrostatic pressure is applied on the internal
This command is also valid in PREP7.
