Marinflex 99 is the third European Conference on Flexible Pipes, Umbilicals and Marine Cables - Materials Utilisation for Cyclic and Thermal Loading. This volume of the proceedings of Marinflex 99 contains the papers presented at the conference. The event focused on materials utilisation for cyclic and thermal loading where Marinflex 99 continues in its well established tradition of offering a forum for designers and researchers. The key technical areas captured in this volume include structural mechanics for cyclic and thermal loading, methodologies for detailed design, materials behaviour for pipe and connector performance and developments for deep water applications.
