Risk-based approach identifies critical hot spot

Planning guidelines will save offshore costs

Fatigue cracks can cause significant damage to offshore structures and is a major concern for the owners of oil and gas platforms, semi submersibles and floating production vessels.Caused by high stress concentrations over lengthy periods of time, fatigue is potentially one of the main contributors to the long-term degradation of offshore structural integrity. Exposure to the continuous forces of wind, wave and ocean currents contributes to the development and growth of fatigue crack and, ult...
