VIV Solutions’ SHEAR7 Report

SHEAR7 is the offshore industry’s leading tool for conducting vortex-induced vibration (VIV) analyses of deepwater risers and pipelines. Helical strakes and fairings are often installed on subsea structures to suppress VIV and mitigate the long-term effects of harsh environmental conditions, thereby lengthening the fatigue life ensuring safe operations.

As such, VIV Solutions® has developed a new set of input coefficients that better match data measured during controlled laboratory experiments than the default SHEAR7 coefficients.  Our calibration exercise is intended to produce ...
