Mechanics of Offshore Pipelines: Volume 1 Buckling and by Stelios Kyriakides,Edmundo Corona PDF

By Stelios Kyriakides,Edmundo Corona

Offshore oil and fuel creation was once carried out in the course of the whole twentieth century, however the industry’s glossy value and vibrancy didn't commence until eventually the early Seventies, whilst the North Sea turned an important manufacturer. considering the fact that then, the growth of the offshore oil has been non-stop and swift.
Pipelines, and extra usually lengthy tubular buildings, are significant oil and fuel instruments utilized in exploration, drilling, creation, and transmission. fitting and working tubular constructions in deep waters areas detailed calls for on them. Technical demanding situations in the box have spawned major examine and improvement efforts in a vast diversity of areas.
Volume I addresses difficulties of buckling and cave in of lengthy inelastic cylinders lower than numerous rather a lot encountered within the offshore area. numerous of the strategies also are at once appropriate to land pipelines. The method of Mechanics of Offshore Pipelines is challenge orientated. The history of every challenge and state of affairs are first defined and every dialogue finishes with layout recommendations.

* New and classical difficulties addressed - investigated via a mix of experiments and analysis
* every one bankruptcy offers with a selected mechanical challenge that's analyzed independently
* the basic nature of the issues makes them additionally appropriate to different fields, together with tubular parts in nuclear reactors and tool crops, aerospace constructions, car and civil engineering buildings, naval autos and structures
