Paper Title:
Tailoring of Composite Reinforcements for Weight Reduction of Offshore Production Risers
  Abstract

The use of composite materials in offshore engineering for deep sea oil production riser systems would lead to weight savings and improvement in fatigue and corrosion resistance. This paper examines the weight saving potentials offered by varying fibre orientations, stacking sequences, fibre matrix combinations and liner materials for deep sea riser tubulars. Four main load cases, recommended by design standards for the local design of composite offshore risers, are considered in the analysis using three-dimensional finite element modelling: maximum internal pressure, axial tension, top tension with external pressure and maximum external pressure.
