Axial Capacity of Steel Pipe Piles in Clay
Development of theories for the prediction of the axial compressive and tensile load capacities of driven piles is made difficult by a variety of factors, e.g., disturbance of the soil...

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...
