Spotlight on PhD Student Rasoul Hejazi

Rasoul Hejazi’s work tackles the fundamental dynamic behaviour of large diameter steel catenary riser (SCR) systems under random ocean waves and currents in the North West Shelf (NWS).  Rasoul’s refined fatigue design procedure for SCRs will enable the use of larger diameter SCRs by moving the touchdown point (TDP) and thereby causing the distribution of…
