Material selection in the offshore industry

This report presents general approaches to materials technology in the offshore industry today and in the future and a summary of the recommendtions outlined in two part reports of the project.


The part reports are focused on the integrity of flexible riser systems and the selection of super martensitic 13Cr stainless steel as linepipe material.

The complex interaction between degradation mechanisms, lifetime prediction and design is exposed.

The parameters are closely connected, as amajor part of the research and development on the topics are related to investigations performed in the wake of incidents.
