If you have a question about this talk, please contact Lorna Everett.

The search for energy is pushing oil and gas exploration into deep-water locations requiring the use of floating rigs or drillships. Drilling wells in these locations brings particular engineering challenges. Costs are high, the environment is harsh, safety is critical, and there are significant technical challenges. The marine drilling riser is the connection between the floating rig and the sub-sea well. Appropriate analysis can reduce cost and risk. Successful analysis requires an understanding of structural mechanics, fluid-structure interaction, computational efficiency, and sound engineering judgement. This seminar will use a recently drilled well as an example to demonstrate how the various strands of successful analysis come together.
