Code Case 2235-13 figures

Dear sirs,

I`ve seen your huge discussion about (a) and (2a) situation. It`s intresting that no one has questions to Figures of Code Case, especially Figure 2 fnd 4...
Could you please help me with Code Case figure 2 (multiple planar flaws oriented in plane normal to pressure retaining surface)?

- are flaws #1 and #2 oriented in plane normal to pressure retaining surface?
- flaw #1: why is there S>= 2d1 or 2d2 if it is a surface flow and should be S>= d1 or d2?
- why is there S>=0,4d1 or S>=0,4a in cases flaw #3 and flaw #2 if both of them are subsurface and it should be like S>a?
- flaw #4: why L=2a?

Best regards
