Risers and pipelines

We are developing advanced numerical and experimental methods for structural analysis and integrity assessment of risers, umbilicals, power cables  and pipelines. Our technology is based on a combination of theoretical knowledge, extensive use of laboratory facilities and cross-disciplinary engineering expertise.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Static and dynamic analysis of risers including VIV and fatigue assessment of complex cross sections
  • Static and dynamic analysis of pipelines; simulation of pipe laying, free span assessment, upheaval buckling and snaking, trawl board impact, on-bottom stability and fracture integrity assessment
  • Full scale and component qualification testing for fatigue, fracture and corrosion
  • Materials, coatings, and joining/welding technologies
