Example 10 simulates an articulated S-Lay installation scenario. The model includes a lay vessel equipped with an articulated S-Lay stinger. The stinger is comprised of two stinger sections with three V-shaped roller boxes on each section. Hinges are placed at the start of each section in order to allow the sections to move independently of one another. The pipeline runs along a set of vessel supports before passing over the stinger sections and down onto the seabed. The pipeline is restrained on the vessel deck by a tensioner. Both static and dynamic analyses are included in the example. Regular wave loading is applied during the dynamic analysis. The figure below illustrates the static configuration.
