Abstract
DESIGNS OF TENSION LEG PLATFORM (TLP) TENDON ELEMENTS WILL BE DESCRIBED AND ANALYZED FROM THE STANDPOINT OF CRITICAL FLAWS AND FRACTURE MECHANICS. VARIOUS INSPECTION METHODS FOR DETECTION OF CRACKS OR OTHER STRUCTURAL FLAWS (E.G. CORROSION) WILL BE IDENTIFIED. IN PARTICULAR, ULTRASONIC DETECTION (UT) WILL BE EXAMINED IN CONNECTION WITH GENERIC TENDON COUPLING DESIGNS, AND A MODEL RELATING UT INSPECTION PERFORMANCE TO COUPLING DESIGN WILL BE PROPOSED.
