ORE Seminar: Development of a Fiber Optic Mooring and Marine Pipeline Installa

October 26, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Watanabe Hall 112 and Zoom, see description for ID and password Add to Calendar

Makai Ocean Engineering will present several recent projects including the development of a Fiber Optic Mooring system, and the installation engineering of several marine pipelines. The Fiber Optic Mooring project is aimed at developing a compliant cable section that enables fiber optic communications between the ocean surface to the seafloor, while also serving as the mooring member for a buoy. Various stages of the project will be discussed from dynamic ocean modeling, material fatigue testing, mechanical and electrical design, fabrication, and field testing. This project outlines the general development process at Makai Ocean Engineering. Makai has also recently completed the installation engineering design for several steel and HDPE marine pipelines in the US and Arabian Gulf. These pipeline installation methods and dynamic analysis techniques will be presented.
