ISBN 1 874612 17 X
Flexible pipes are playing an increasing role as both risers and as inter-field pipelines. The unconventional geometry of flexible risers and their composite construction requires that new design methods, calculation procedures and fatigue issues need to be considered. This book contains extensive information on all aspects of flexible riser design and construction. It is suitable for engineers who are unfamiliar with the subject or those seeking reference.
