Vortex-Induced Vibration (VIV) Study

Enhancing Structural Integrity: A Comprehensive Engineering Assistance Project for Vortex-Induced Vibration (VIV) Study

Vortex-Induced Vibration (VIV) is a critical phenomenon encountered in offshore structures such as risers and pipelines subjected to fluid flow. The cyclic motion induced by VIV can lead to fatigue and structural damage, necessitating a thorough investigation for effective mitigation strategies. MISC Berhad, a leading player in the maritime and energy industry, recognized the importance of addressing VIV to enhance the reliability and longevity of their offshore assets.
