Research Lines

The Offshore Mechanics Laboratory of University of São Paulo researchers have broad experience in flexible pipes and umbilical cables structural behavior modelling. This topic is dealt with since the laboratory foundation, employing various approaches, including analytical and numerical ones, while also developing custom-made software that implement such models.

The group also has large experience in planning, execution and result analysis in experiments related to flexible pipes and umbilical structural behavior, either in research laboratories in academia and industry.
This experience, both theoretical and experimental, is reflected in various publications in the field, as can be seen in the recent publications section.
