Fatigue analysis of subsea mining equipment

PDL supported a world leading manufacturer of remotely operated vehicles (ROV) used in subsea environments. The project involved the high cycle fatigue assessment of subsea mining equipment to be used in the mining of rich mineral deposits in the oceans of South East Asia. In total the chassis’ of 3 different machines, each with a different function and associated set of loads were assessed. All 3 chassis’ were fabricated structures weighing in excess of 40Te. The assessment was carried out in accordance with the provisions of DNV-RP-C203.
