Applications of Vortex Induced vibrations are widely used in petroleum exploration and offshore drilling and deep water engineering applications. With the increase in depth these vibrations affect the structure of pipes or vessels used in exploration of the hydrocarbons. These vibrations lead to the fatigue and constant loading of the pipes and eventually affect the structure of the pipes and vessels. In severe cases Vortex induced vibrations rupture the risers, which eventually disrupt… CONTINUE READING
