On-Board Pipeline Installation And Fatigue Monitoring System

May 2009 Vol. 236 No. 5

As subsea pipeline developments continue to move into deep and ultra-deep water locations, there is an increasing need for the accurate prediction of expected pipeline fatigue life. A significant factor that must be considered as part of this process is the accumulated fatigue damage experienced by a pipeline weld during installation, i.e. before commencement of operations.
