Drilling Riser Fatigue Monitored in Real Time Aboard Drillship


A riser-fatigue monitoring system (RFMS) has been developed to provide field measurements of drilling riser stress and fatigue in near-real-time. During the two deployments on the Chikyu drilling riser, the system successfully recorded riser dynamics in the field, capturing a number of riser excitation events.
