Damping Characteristics of Fairings for Suppressing Vortex-Induced Vibrations
Vortex-induced vibration (VIV) tests have been performed on long, flexible pipes with fairings in sheared flows in a circular towing tank at prototype Reynolds numbers for production risers [1]. ItExpand

Vortex Induced Vibration Tests of Smooth and Rough Flexible Cylinders at High Reynolds Numbers
Vortex-induced vibration (VIV) tests have been performed on long, flexible pipes with various levels of roughness, in sheared flows in a circular towing tank at high Reynolds numbers. The test pipes,Expand
Vortex-Induced Vibration Current Tank Tests of Two Equal Diameter Cylinders Offset From Tandem
Two equal diameter ABS cylinders, offset from tandem, were subjected to uniform and sheared flows in a current tank at subcritical Reynolds numbers. Both tubes were filled with a saltwater solutionExpand

The Effects of Mixing Helical Strakes and Fairings on Marine Tubulars and Arrays
Most deepwater tubulars experiencing high currents frequently require vortex-induced vibration (VIV) suppression to maintain an acceptable fatigue life. Helical strakes and fairings are the mostExpand
Coupled VIV and Heat Transfer Analyses: Design of VIV Suppression Configuration for the Independence Hub SCRs
Independence Hub (IH), a semisubmersible production platform in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico is currently under construction and will produce gas and condensate from multiple subsea developments. TheExpand
Blade Henning Devices for VIV Suppression of Offshore Tubulars
This paper discusses a new type of vortex-induced vibration (VIV) suppression devices, the blade Henning device, named after one of the primary inventors, Dean Henning. It consists of four blades,Expand
