The INTEGRIstick: rapidly deployable drilling riser strain monitoring

In order to understand the fatigue caused by metocean factors and to estimate remaining life of drilling and completion risers, riser monitoring systems are often installed. Although the global response data delivered by motion sensors make them the most popular approach for riser monitoring applications, strain gauges can also be used to measure local bending and curvature. These can be particularly useful where riser analysis highlights a specific area of concern. Strain gauges have been used for many years in the offshore industry, with a large number applications installed on a range of riser types. However, although strain gauging remains an important technology for riser monitoring systems, there are certain downsides to using this approach: Read more…
