A flexible riser is a multi-layered pipe device which enables deep-water production by connecting seabed facilities to floating vessels. To withstand huge hydro-static pressure, it is required to have strong collapse capacities. At present, the collapse capacity of a flexible riser is designed based on a "wet collapse'' concept, in which the...

Flexible risers are being required to be installed in a water depth of over 3000 m for fewer remaining easy-to-access oil fields nowadays. Their innermost carcass layers are designed for external pressure resistance since the hydrostatic pressure at such a water depth may cause the collapse failure of flexible risers. Determining a critical...
