Roller chute for the installation of umbilicals

PDL engineers supported a world leader in subsea umbilical solutions to assess the suitability of a new design of chute for the installation of umbilicals. The new roller chute was designed with the intention of reducing friction when installing umbilicals.

The engineers were responsible for conducting dynamic 3D finite element analysis (FEA) on a range of umbilical designs, using the Abaqus software package. The purpose of the analysis was to determine whether the deformation and stresses in the umbilical components was within acceptable limits when the umbilical was wrapped around the new chute design under tension.
