“ Experimental setup for slug flow-induced vibration in a flexible riser”

This work presents the challenges and the solutions taken in the development of an experimental framework for the investigation of multiphase flow-induced vibrations in a flexible riser with particular interest in the slug flow regime. Structural analysis based on finite element models and CFD models are used to explore the occurrence of liquid slugs in the internal multiphase flow and assess its effect on the dynamics of the system. The interaction between the fluid and the structure and potential resonant phenomena in the system are investigated: these have profound implications on the design of both the experimental rig and the acquisition system. Preliminary results together with a roadmap for the safe and efficient undertaking of similar experimental tests are presented. 

  • Q&A
