Bending behaviour of a flexible riser system, supported by a bending restrictor
conform coflexip specification 2dln.
Report 86.3.OS.2083, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
The bending behaviour of a 4" Coflexip flexible flowline with a bending
restrictor, has been solved with finite elements. Non-linear elastic material
behaviour, large displacements, geometrical stiffness and geometrical
non-linearity are taken into account.
Pretension and forced rotation will be the loading, leading to results
concerning stress, curvature and deformation.
