BMS is Bundle Main Section is made of line pipe(s) and buoyancy/isolation foam.
Flexible jumpers provide a decoupling effect from vessel motions and hence help to reduce
fatigue. They have to be long enough to accommodate vertical motion between the riser and the
platform at maximum offset.

A typical flexible pipe consists of the following layers:
Carcass (made of stainless steel) which provides external pressure resistance and
collapse resistance;
Internal Sheath (made of polymer) which provides internal fluid containment barrier;
Pressure Armour (made of carbon steel) which provides hoop load resistance; it also
contributes to collapse resistance;
External Shealth (made of polymer) which provides external fluid barrier;

First we calculate mass of the internal fluid

Installation methods of SCR:
S-lay
Used for SCR up to moderate water depth
Can be used for very deep water with modified stinger
Curvature induced at stinger is a limiting factor
J-lay
Suitable installation in deep and ultra deep water
Reel-lay
Used widely for installation of SCR
It is faster than J-lay with more controlled stop welds instead of off-shore welding
It requires more complex weld testing and fracture mechanics work
Larger SCR might not be able to sustain stresses induced by reeling max strain and low
cycle fatigues are issues
It requires nearby spool base to be economical

Installation challenges are:
Large diameter
Positioning for TDP and clashing during transfer
Rigging/hanging of pull-in/abandonment
Weather fatigue during installation
Vessel on-site vs. abandonment & recovery

TTR requires low motion vessels such as TLP, Truss Spar or Cell Spar. High motion vessels
such as Semi-submersible rig or FPSO are not practical to use. To ensure that the appropriate
tension is provided to the riser, heave and pitch responses of the chosen vessel have to be small.

Tension is provided by the following types of the tensioning system:
Buoyancy cans
Hydraulic/pneumatic tensioners
Direct hand-off

First minimal wall thickness has to be calculated as
min corr f

where 0.8 0.0254 0.0203 t = = m is wall thickness, 0.0025
