The Suspension System Design for the Tensioner of the Ocean Pipeline Barge
Based on the variable stiffness elastic principle, completed three series of variable stiffness elastic suspension system design for the ocean pipe laying tensioners, effectively improved the clamping ability of the tensioner when the local pipe diameter is changing, and improved the overall stress environment of the tensioner. Established non-linear mathematical model and got the impact of instant response and response force by using the Matlab software.
