Subsea Pipeline Engineering by Andrew C. Palmer

By Andrew C. Palmer

This moment variation covers the whole spectrum of matters within the self-discipline, from direction choice and making plans to layout, building, deploy, fabrics and corrosion, inspection, welding, fix, threat overview, and appropriate layout codes and criteria. specific awareness can also be dedicated to the $64000 really good topics of hydraulics, energy, balance, fracture, upheaval, lateral buckling and decommissioning. The publication is distilled from the authors' massive event in and their world-renowned direction on Subsea Pipeline Engineering.

Geoscience after IT: a view of the present and future impact of information technology on geoscience

So much geoscientists are conscious of contemporary IT advancements, yet can't spend time on vague technicalities. Few have thought of their implications for the technological know-how as a complete. but the knowledge is relocating speedy: digital supply of hyperlinked multimedia; criteria to aid interdisciplinary and geographic integration; new types to symbolize and visualize our ideas, and regulate and deal with our actions; plummeting expenditures that strength the speed.

The Chemistry and Technology of Petroleum

Refineries must never basically adapt to evolving environmental rules for purifier product necessities and processing, but in addition locate how one can meet the expanding call for for petroleum products,particularly for liquid fuels and petrochemical feedstocks. The Chemistry and expertise of Petroleum, Fourth variation deals a twenty first century point of view at the improvement of petroleum refining applied sciences.

Example text

However, it is generally the case that higher-grade steel is cost-effective because the reduction in tonnage of material more than makes up for the increased cost per metric ton. Over the last decade, many land pipelines have been constructed with grade X70 and X80 steels; and confidence has grown in the use and welding of these steels. indb 34 6/23/08 10:06:03 AM Carbon-Manganese Steels 35 expected that the higher-strength steels, X70 and X80, will be more widely used for submarine pipelines in the future.

The microalloying elements dissolve in the molten steel and react to form carbides (−C), nitrides (−N), or carbo-nitrides (−CN) that precipitate at the austenite-ferrite boundaries as the steel transforms from austenite to ferrite. The grain growth of the ferrite is restricted. During normalization, the transformation to austenite and back results in additional grain size pinning: A very-fine-grain steel is produced. indb 42 6/23/08 10:06:09 AM Carbon-Manganese Steels 43 also increase the frictional forces between the grains, which have a direct effect on the steel strength.

It is also desirable to avoid areas where waves are particularly high, because of the adverse effect on stability of wave-induced water movements and because high waves slow or stop pipelaying. Wave-induced velocities are negligibly small at depths greater than half a wave length, but velocities increase significantly as the water depth decreases. The effect is still more severe if the waves break. It is good to avoid long sections in shallow water and better to choose a route in deeper water, even if it is longer.
