Monitoring, Maintenance Of Mooring Systems Help To Extend Design Life of Production Facilities
As many platforms begin to produce beyond their design life, maintenance of mooring systems becomes more critical. With redundancies in place, operators may be unaware of initial failures, which can have major consequences if another failure occurs.
Definition of a Cutoff Natural Frequency for Smallbore Pipework Connections
Vibration-induced fatigue failures of pipework smallbore connections result in elevated safety risks and costly interruptions to normal operations. A common cause is poor design. This article discusses design considerations to avoid these failures.
Acoustic-Induced-Vibration Case Study for WDDM Onshore Facilities
In gas applications with high-pressure drops and/or high-velocity gas flow, acoustic-induced vibration (AIV) occurs when very high sound levels are propagated in piping. This can induce fatigue cracking of the pipe and potentially catastrophic pipe failure.
