Seminar & Webinar: Overview of Vortex-Induced Vibrations and Its Suppression Devices

This presentation will address various considerations related to the analysis, design, and installation of suppression devices.  

Topics for discussion include:
  • Comparison of suppression device geometries and their respective benefits/shortcomings
  • SHEAR7 and other analysis programs to reduce conservatism and optimize suppression layouts
  • Coverage length and density implications
  • Effects of marine growth and ways to mitigate fouling
  • Fairings versus alternative buoyancy concepts for deepwater drilling
  • Offshore installation techniques
Attendees will gain a broader understanding of how to mitigate VIV and improve the long-term fatigue life of long slender tubulars exposed to strong ocean currents.

Seminar & Webinar: LGS a Low Drag VIV Suppression Technology

 
The smooth cylindrical shape of risers can result in significant Vortex Induce Vibration (VIV) response in high current conditions, causing overall amplification of drag experienced by the riser. 

This presentation presents the correlation of lab tests results with field trial results on a drilling riser and presents the adaptation of the technology for a pipeline free span application. 
 
Who should attend
Riser analysist, project engineers, project managers, drilling contractors
