... on the seafloor. 2-D deflection and 3-D motions of a 5486-m-long (18,OOO-ftl articulated pipe system and buffer cau be controlled with elastic joints, axial dampers and the buffer at the bottom end of the pipe, and further with thrusters installed along the pipe, controlling the lateral den«tion and reducing...

... are compared through the 3-D nonlinear coupled analyses, using a nonlinear code, 3DNLPIPE, analyzing the effects of axial dampers along the pipe (Cheng and Chung, 1996), both with and without elastic joints, and the axial, as well as bending, stiffness of the elastic joints. It is found that the axial dampers...
