Project Details –
Design and Analysis of FLDF (Flying Lead Deployment Frame) for Subsea Applications
Sponsor: Aker Solutions, Pune
Duration: July 2014 – July 2015
A structural frame to carry the Flying lead of 1200 m length and weighing 2500 kg was designed and analyzed to evaluate the efficiency ratio according to DNV 2.7-3 and Eurocode 3 using FEA. In different phases, the effect of environmental loads, accidental loads and permanent loads was studied. Different load cases according to DNV 2.7-3 - Normal Lifting, Sea Transport, Impact, Drop and Retrieval were performed and the member verification was carried out. The structural integrity of different connections or joints within the structure was checked. Finally, the Optimization was carried out to minimize the efficiency ratio and to reduce the weight.The structure was analyzed in Autodesk RSA and calculations were performed in PTC Mathcad. For different load cases the efficiency ratio of the structure was in between 0.220 to 0.904 but the efficiency ratio for drop case was beyond limit i.e. 1.045 before optimization and 0.794 after optimization
