The course provides students with detailed knowledge of risers systems design considerations. Typical riser systems including flexible, steel catenary, hybrid and top tensioned riser systems are covered. The ocean environmental hydrodynamics and interactions between vessel, mooring and riser systems are also considered.

The course provides students with detailed knowledge of risers systems design considerations. Typical riser systems including flexible, steel catenary, hybrid and top tensioned riser systems are considered and special attention is paid to current design approaches for those systems. Other important topics such as effective tension concept, vessel response characterisation including response amplitude operators and second order response, ocean environmental hydrodynamics, regular and irregular wave loading analysis, time and frequency domain solution techniques and riser ancillary equipment are also covered.
For students studying for MSc Subsea Engineering. EG55G6 is the code for the online version of the course.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1 three hour examination (75%) and continuous assessment (25%).
The re-sit will comprise of re-doing the failed element/s (exam and/or coursework assessment/s) from the 1st attempt with a maximum CGS mark of D3. The marks for other elements (successfully passed) will be carried over. Resit mark of either RP or RF will be recorded.
There are no assessments for this course.
a) Students can receive feedback on their progress with the course on request at the weekly tutorial/feedback sessions.
b) Previous past year paper and the solution will be available to the student to give them the chance to self-assess their own performance.
c) Feedback on performance in continuous assessment will be provided.
