How to Unlock Pipelay Stress
During the installation of offshore pipelays, the steel pipe will see some of the highest stresses of its entire lifecycle. These stresses frequently reach 80 percent of the yield strength of the materials. One consequence of these high installation stresses is that construction considerations often set the wall thickness and the pie grad (yield stress).
In this webinar, Mr. David Hairston will develop the geometric framework that leads to defining the stresses in the pipe during installation.
