A Solution for Wind-Induced Vortex-Shedding Vibration of the Harmony and Heritage Platforms During Transpacific Tow
This paper describes the results of an advanced procedure for analyzing wind-induced vortex-shedding vibration (VSV) which was used for the transpacific tows of the Harmony and Heritage...

Application of Model Pile Tests to Axial Pile Design
Experiments conducted with instrumented model pile segment probes at Harvey and Empire, Louisiana are summarized and the observed behavior interpreted. Correlations are developed for the...

Advanced Fracture Control Procedures for Deepwater Platforms and Compliant Towers
This paper describes an integrated approach to fracture control problems – applied first as a necessary adjunct to the authors' own engineering practice, then in developing...

Case Study of Offshore Pile System Reliability
This paper presents the results of research effort to evaluate the reliability of offshore pile foundation systems. It is an extension of previous work by the authors [14] dealing with...

Offshore Platform Steel Specification
The discovery in the 1980's of local brittle zones (LBZ's) in and near the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of the fabrication welds in certain offshore platform steels...

Design and Installation of Auger Steel Catenary Risers
The Auger export pipelines are connected to the TLP by steel catenary risers (SCRs). This is believed to be the first time steel pipe has been used for catenary risers. SCRs offer advantages...
