Pipe Material Specification

Poisson Coefficient:

Material Yield:

.
Pipe Specification note1
: Please input pipe characteristics from smaller to larger diameter, from concentric Ring 1 to Ring 7 (see drawing below). A ring can be made of any material, metal, coating or insulation. PLEASE LEAVE NO BLANK CELLS, INPUT 0 FOR NULL VALUES.
.
OD note2
: Auto will have the program automatically calculate ODs from the adjacent inner ring's OD and wall thickness. Overwrite Auto with your own figures if you want to force different values, to reflect gaps between rings for example. An alternative conserving the Auto feature for gaps is to consider the gap as an empty ring of 0 weight.

Rings

Floating Construction Facility

Pipe is Submerged:

kg/m3 (outside fluid specific weight, 0 if N/A)



Pipe is Flooded:

kg/m3 (inside fluid specific weight, 0 if N/A)

Water Depth:

m


CoM: Center of Mass

CoB: Center of Buoyancy

Floating Construction Facility
(see drawing above right)

Note3: Floating Construction Facility, Hang-Off and CoM/CoB data will be used by program to calculate composite oscillations involving rolling and pitching. Leave default values if you don't require Dynamic Analysis or choose to force your own Heaving values (see Heaving note5 below)

Position of Hang-Off point from stern/centerline


Position of CoM/CoB from stern/centerline

Length:

m

Longitudinally Y(H):

m

m

Width:

m

Athwartships X(H)*:

m

Longitudinally
Y(M)=Y(B)

Depth:

m

Height above CoM
Z(H)-Z(M):

m


Draft:

m

* Absolute value, always positive



Facility's oscillations

Amplitude (0 to max)

First Natural Period

Fixed Position

Call for special environment

Rolling:

deg

seconds

Note4: “Fixed Position” means facility's horizontal geographic position is made constant by use of Dynamic Positioning or tight anchoring

Pitching:

deg

seconds



Heaving (see foot note5):

m

seconds



Heaving note5: If you need the computation to reflect your own composite heaving behavior, just set rolling and pitching values to zero and input heaving figures only.
