    2018, 5 (增刊):  10-14. 
    Abstract ( 219 )   PDF (3485KB) ( 139 )  
    For the Bohai Sea drilling platform in the penetration encountered in the process of the shallow gas reservoirs with different degree of bubbles phenomenon, based on the characteristics of shallow gas release during on-site exploration in the Bohai Sea, it should be believed that the main factor of shallow gas release is the original gas stress destroyed by the platform leg. The shallow gas release is the seepage failure process of the unsaturated soil when the permeability ratio of the gas-bearing soil layer exceeds the critical pressure drop of the gas pressure. It mainly affects the structural damage and disturbance of the stratum soil. The disturbed stratum of the inserted penetration is mainly divided into four areas, including high disturbance area, medium disturbance area, weak disturbance area and non-disturbance area. The collapse of the clay layer and the sand layer in the Bohai Sea will cause the soil layer to be severely disturbed, which will greatly reduce the bearing capacity of the penetration foundation, the sinking of the penetration legs or the uneven settlement of the soil layer. In order to prevent the platform penetration accident, the safety design under different working conditions should be taken into full consideration, so should the reasonable selection of penetration shoe area and release shallow air.

Consequently, the structure will be complicated, overweight and even unreasonable, which would waste materials and increase the difficulty of fabrication. With the rapid development of finite element analysis technology, the use of numerical simulation technology for optimal design of structure can improve the distribution of design resource and the resistance of the material, saves the material consumption and make the structure more reasonable. Based on the finite element analysis software ANSYS, the conveying frame of EP18-1 topside was modeled and simulation in the construction, transportation and loadout conditions. According to the results of calculation and analysis, the structure was optimized on the premise of guaranteeing the structural and deformation, and then do the comparative analysis.

    Abstract ( 322 )   PDF (1040KB) ( 267 )  
    With the development of offshore oil engineering ships, the welding technology of hull structures is diversified. In particular, the quality requirements for butt welds of unequal thickness plates of hull plates are getting higher and higher. Radiographic testing(RT)has a great change in the thickness of the unequal thickness of butt weld. If the selection of the parameters is improper, it is easy to make the radiotherapy density negatives too large, which can affect the sensitivity of RT, and can not guarantee the defects in the workpiece to be detected effectively. Thickness tolerance is an important parameter for the RT of variable cross-section workpiece. The thickness tolerance can be calculated through the function relation of exposure curve and the function relation of film characteristic curve, but it is only theoretical value. This paper mainly discusses how to measure the thickness tolerance of different tube voltages and different films under the certain conditions of exposure and focal length by experimental method and its practical application.

    Gas-liquid two phase flow widely exists in deep-water oil and gas production process. As the structural limitation of subsea wellhead, only the wellhead temperature of tubing fluid and annular fluid can be measured. In this paper, considering the heat transfer mechanism of gas-liquid two phase flow in the production process,the temperature distribution model of deep-water wellbore two phase flow is established by semi-steady state method based on the mass, momentum and energy conservation equations. The results show that the temperature of the tubing fluid and the annular fluid decreases with decreasing of the depth for the well, and the outer annulus temperature changes, and the wellhead temperature of the tubing decreases with increasing of the apparent velocity of the gas in the tube and increases with increasing of the apparent velocity of the liquid. The lower ratio of the gas and liquid velocity, the higher wellhead temperature of the tubing fluid, and the higher ratio of the gas and liquid velocity, the lower the wellhead temperature of the tubing fluid. Annular temperature decreases with the increasing the velocity ratio of gas and liquid.

    Underwater hydraulic technology is widely used in deep-sea exploration and resource exploitation. In order to eliminate the influence of seawater pressure on the hydraulic system, improve the efficiency of the system, pressure compensation technology is commonly used in hydraulic systems. As a key element of pressure compensation technology, the pressure compensator has been designed on the basis of experiences. In this paper, the software AMESim is used to simulate the underwater hydraulic system and it is obtained that the influence of structural parameters of compensator and hydraulic system parameters on hydraulic system. While the preloading pressure is the same, the greater the spring stiffness of the compensator, the faster the pressure of the compensator decreases, and the smaller the differential between the pressure of the tank and the environment pressure. The larger the inner diameter of the compensator, the smaller the peak of system pressure fluctuation. Due to the load, the pressure on both sides of the cylinder is likely to be lower than that of the environment pressure, and the water enters the cylinder. Adding the throttle valve at both sides of the cylinder to control the speed of it can significantly increase the pressure on both sides of it, and improve the sealing reliability of the system.

    Abstract ( 181 )   PDF (827KB) ( 279 )  

    In recent years, the development of ozone desulfurization and denitrification technology has been the focus of the ship industry. Based on the principle of ozone desulfurization and denitrification technology, this paper analyzes the advantages and challenges of the application of this technology on seagoing vessels in combination with the actual situation, and puts forward suggestions on safety protection. The analysis results show that compared with the technical solution of SCR+EGC, the ozone desulfurization and denitration technology has the advantages of integrated desulfurization and denitrification, more flexible equipment layout and low dependence on diesel engine operation data. However, there are problems such as large power consumption, low ozone production, and risk of washing water discharge. It is calculated that the power of the ozone desulfurization and denitration system accounts for 6.97%~15.58% of the power of the matched diesel engine. The maximum power of a single diesel generator that can be adapted is 8.49~16.4MW, and it is difficult to arrange multiple devices in parallel due to the limitation of equipment volume. Washing wastewater has a high nitrate content and it is difficult to meet existing emission standards. For safety, it is recommended that the ozone equipment be arranged in a separate room with independent ventilation. The equipment in the hazardous area is made of special anticorrosion materials, equipped with O2, O3concentration and temperature detection systems and fireproof and explosionproof equipment.

    A brief introduction to the design concept of underwater walking & swimming robot is provided in this paper. And based on the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method, a hydrodynamic numerical simulation model for the robot body is established. Then the flow field under different body inclination conditions and different ocean currents is numerically simulated by ANSYS Fluent, and the curves of resistance, lift and pitching moment with inclination are obtained. At the same time, the stability analysis method for underwater walking &swimming robot is established by combining dynamic stability margin method (DSM), and the stability of the walking &swimming robot is analyzed. The stability of the tilting activity threshold is obtained under different inflow environments.
