Pipe vibration assessment

Pipe failure - Crack in pipe due to vibration

Background Having control over vibration might seem like a daunting task. On one side there are many sources to vibration, ie. pulsation, flow, external forces, machinery. On the other hand, there are many mechanical structures that can be put into motion, ie. internal components, pipes, main structure, valves. When you know that Vibration = Force * … Read more

Apropos resonance…

When working with vibration and sound, resonance is a quite vital thing to always keep in consideration. Even when not into our field of business, most people have tried out acoustic resonance – when blowing into a bottle, making a flute. Or, felt the power of mechanical resonance and perhaps seen dramatic consequences of it … Read more

Uncomfortable changes?

offshore no

The facsimiles above are retrieved from offshore.no (in Norwegian). In the latest several accidents on Norwegian oil and gas sites have been reported. Of course, these are news that adds fuel to the debate regarding how many cuts that can be made in the oil and gas industry, without risking the safety of humans or environment. … Read more

Support calculator: Calculation of maximum recommended pipe length between supports

Straight pipe with supports

Background A simple support will increase the mechanical stiffness of the pipelines and make it more robust against vibration. This tool is intended to be used as an aid for operational personnel at a process facility for doing a rough estimate of recommended maximum distances between supports. The calculator is not meant to be a … Read more
