Results - Random Sea Analysis
The random sea analysis in this example corresponds to Stage 3. Results for this analysis are presented in the three figures below. Each plot represents an envelope of a particular parameter plotted against the curvilinear distance along the pipeline from the vessel connection point ‘_TensionerVCP(1)’. The various envelopes depicted similar behaviour to the Regular Wave Analysis results and so the same comments apply here.
Effective Tension Envelope
Bending Moment Envelope
Maximum Von Mises Strain Envelope
