viv strakes

GENERAL

On subsea fields, BARDOT Vortex Induced Vibrations (VIV) Strakes can be installed on Risers, Flowlines and Jumpers to protect them from the phenomenon of VIV which can cause fatigue damage.

DESIGN

BARDOT VIV Strakes are designed and engineered in order to suppress the maximum of these turbulent issues.

BARDOT VIV Strakes are composed of interlocking element half shells made of a marine grade abrasion resistant polyurethane or polyethylene. On the top of the protections BARDOT designed a specific helical strake to reduce VIV.
