Free spanning cable analysis

Offshore environmental conditions can lead to localised changes in seabed levels, exposing buried subsea power cables, resulting in unintended free spans. Free spanning cable sections present a risk to the operator as loading imparted on the exposed cable could lead to failure.

This case study presents the approach employed by and the software developed by AgileTek to model and assess the fatigue life of a free spanning cable under operational conditions.
