Fundamentals of Marine Riser Mechanics, 2nd Ed.

Marine risers are unusual structures that defy standard engineering intuition, yet they are critical to the safety and structural integrity of offshore platforms. In this new edition of Fundamentals of Marine Riser Mechanics, six additional chapters provide further arguments to support effective tension as well as original analysis of helical buckling. An entire chapter is devoted to the Macondo accident of 2010, where it is known that helical buckling of the drill pipe within the riser led to pipe deflection inside the blowout preventer (BOP), sufficient to prevent the latter from closing the well.

Features and benefits:

  • Details on the Macondo incident and how the behavior of the drill pipe within the marine riser affected this tragedy
  • Analysis of helical buckling inside a riser associated with flexing pipe inside a seabed BOP
  • Discussion of how and when planar buckling transforms into helical buckling
  • Three new Excel files that allow readers to perform further calculations with their own data

Contents:

  • Nomenclature
  • SI unit equivalents
  • Introduction
  • Pipe and riser deflections and global stability: The effective tension concept
  • Application of effective tension: Frequent difficulties and particular cases
  • Pipe and riser stresses
  • Pipe and riser strains
  • Tensioned-beam behavior
  • Statistics of near-vertical cables
  • Near-vertical riser static behavior
  • Stress joint design
  • Riser bundles: Local bending between guides
  • Near-vertical risers associated with floating platforms with stiff tensioners
  • Steel catenary risers
  • Axial vibrations of fixed risers
  • Axial vibrations of hung-off risers
  • Transverse modal vibrations of near-vertical risers
  • Effective tension and buoyancy—Additional arguments
  • Introduction to helical buckling
  • Exact analysis of a regular helix
  • Analysis of helix end sections
