The 22nd International Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM) of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics was hosted by the Australasian mechanics community in the city of Adelaide during the last week of August 2008. Over 1200 delegates met to discuss the latest development in the fields of theoretical and applied mechanics. This volume records the events of the congress and contains selected papers from the sectional lectures and invited lectures presented at the congresses six mini-symposia.

Fundamentals of Marine Riser Mechanics

Relationship between riser stretch and setdown The effect of TLP offset and
setdown on the riser may be thought of in two ways. As shown in figure 11–2a,
the riser top end can be thought of as first being offset and set down, under
constant ...

Marine risers are unusual structures that defy standard engineering intuition, yet they are critical to the safety and structural integrity of offshore platforms. In this new edition of Fundamentals of Marine Riser Mechanics, the six new chapters, which have been added to the original fifteen, provide further arguments to support effective tension as well as original analysis of helical buckling. Analytical methods are used to model all phases of the development of helical buckling within a riser, associated with flexing of the pipe within the seabed BOP and down hole. An entire chapter is devoted to the Macondo accident of 2010. Features and benefits of the new chapters and appendices included in the 2nd Edition: Further arguments that confirm the validity of the Effective Tension concept, based on analysis of real forces applied to the pipe walls by internal and external pressures Analysis of helically buckled pipes within casings, leading to exact expressions for all forces acting in and on a regular helix Analysis of helix end sections that connect a regular helix to a centralised end point on the casing axis, taking into account applied end moments (restoring or disturbing). Proof that such end sections must always include a transition section, in contact with the casing wall, linking the regular helix to the section out of contact with the casing wall. Analysis of drill-pipe deflection inside a seabed BOP and down hole, associated with helical buckling within a riser, with particular reference to the Macondo accident scenario. Discussion of how and when planar buckling transforms into helical buckling Appendices giving details of all required calculation methods Three new Excel files, added to the original seventeen, to allow readers to perform further calculations with their own data
