Flexible Pipe Stress and Fatigue Analysis - DiVA

Henan Li Marine Technology Submission date: June 2012 Supervisor: Svein Sævik, IMT Norwegian University of Science and Technology Department of Marine Technology THESIS WORK SPRING 2012 for Stud. tech. Henan Li Flexible Pipe Stress and Fatigue Analysis Spennings- og utmatnings-analyse av fleksible stigerø r The flexible riser represents a vital part of many oil and gas production systems. During operation of such risers, several failure incidents may take place e.g. caused by fatigue and corrosion. In limit cases where inspections indicate damage, the decision making with regard to continue operation or replacing the riser may have large economic and environmental consequences. Hence, the decision must be based on accurate models to predict the residual strength of the pipe. In most applications, one or several steel layers are used to carry the hoop stress resulting from internal pressure. This is further combined with two layers of cross-wound armour tendons (typically 40-60 tendons in one layer installed with an angle of 35o with the pipe’s length axis) acting as the steel tensile armour to resist the tension and end cap wall force resulting from pressure. The riser fatigue performance may in many cases be governed by the dynamic stresses in the tensile armour. The existing lifetime models for such structures is primarily based on inherent assumptions with respect to the slip properties of the tensile armour. This thesis work focus on establishing a FEM based model for analysis of the tensile armour, so as to analyse the stress and slip behaviour when exposed to different load conditions. The thesis work is to be based on the project work performed and shall include the following steps: 1) Literature study, including flexible pipe technology, failure modes and design criteria, analytical methods for stress analysis of flexible pipes,...

FINAL Deep Dive Report (S10-140310-003)[1] - Federal Railroad ...

On May 17, 2013, in Bridgeport, Connecticut, an accident occurred on Metro-North’s New Haven Line, when an eastbound Metro-North train of 8 cars, traveling 74 mph, derailed and came to rest on an adjacent track. Approximately 20 seconds later, a westbound Metro-North train on that adjacent track struck the derailed train. As a result of the accident, more than 50 people, some seriously injured, were hospitalized, rail operations were suspended, and millions in property damage occurred. • On May 28, 2013, a second accident occurred when a Metro-North train in West Haven, Connecticut, that was traveling 70 mph, struck and killed a Metro-North maintenance-ofway (MOW) employee who was part of a roadway work group performing railroad maintenance on a construction project. • On July 18, 2013, a third accident occurred when a CSX Transportation freight train derailed while traveling over Metro-North’s system. No one was injured, but property damage was significant. • On December 1, 2013, the fourth accident occurred when a Metro-North train of 7 cars traveling south from Poughkeepsie, New York, to Grand Central Terminal in New York City, derailed as it approached the Spuyten Duyvil Station. All cars derailed and the front cab came to rest close to the Harlem River. Four passengers were killed, and more than 70 were injured. Rail operations were suspended, and millions of dollars in property damage alone was sustained. On December 3, 2013, 2 days after the fourth and most serious of these accidents, FRA sent a letter to MTA expressing support for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s directive that MTA hold a safety stand-down, and directing Metro-North to implement a Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS) (Appendix 2). Additionally, FRA issued Emergency Order 29 and Safety Advisory 2013-08. • Emergency Order 29, issued on December 6, 2013, required Metro-North to take immediate action to prevent excessive train speeds by identifying and prioritizing highrisk areas, modifying its existing signal system to ensure speed limits are obeyed, and 1 requiring a higher level of engagement and communication among operating crewmembers in areas in which major speed restrictions are in place. • Safety Advisory 2013-08, issued on December 10, 2013, urged railroads to provide additional training, increase the frequency of operational testing, and reinforced the importance of communication between crew members. The purpose was to ensure that all railroads adhere to Federal regulations and railroad operating rules regarding maximum authorized train speed limits. On December 16, 2013, FRA launched Operation Deep Dive, an assessment of Metro-North’s operations and safety compliance. More than 60 technical and human factor experts comprising 14 teams, conducted a 60-day comprehensive safety assessment of Metro-North. With assistance from the Federal Transit Administration, these experts reviewed and assessed Metro-North’s safety-related processes and procedures, its compliance with safety regulations and requirements, and its overall safety culture. In assessing Metro-North, the Deep Dive team evaluated:...

Production Notes Paper recycling is reprocessing waste paper fibers back into a usable paper product. Soy ink is a helpful component in paper recycling. It helps in this process because the soy ink can be removed more easily than regular ink can be taken out of paper during the de-inking process of recycling. This allows the recycled paper to have less damage to its paper fibers and have a brighter appearance. The waste that is left from the soy ink during the de-inking process is not hazardous and it can be treated easily through the development on modern processes.

JAVA Issues with DTS Logins EFENSE RAVEL

Background The web browser uses Oracle’s Java software to launch the Gradkell Systems Universal WebSigner JAVA applet, which enables your Common Access Card (CAC) to access DTS. Due to increased security within JAVA, outdated versions of JAVA will be unable to launch the Universal WebSigner applet (as well as many other applets for other websites) without lowering JAVA’s security. Check with your organization’s IT office for specific guidance. The Travel Assistance Center offers two potential workarounds, if applicable. Workarounds First, check the version installed on your workstation. Go to Control Panel, Java, and click the “About” button. The version will be displayed. Workstations using older versions of Java 7 (usually update 25) have two options. • Option 1: Upgrade to the latest version of JAVA from www.java.com. o Workstations using the latest version of JAVA will continually get error messages about whether to let the DBsign Universal WebSigner applet run but will be allowed to login to DTS. o Pay close attention to the warnings that appear and answer accordingly so the DBsign Universal WebSigner is not blocked and allowed to run. Depending on your operating system and version of Internet Explorer, the error messages may vary (see figure below.)
