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 distance-learning version of the course.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
1 three hour examination (75%) and continuous assessment (25%)
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.
