Foreword

These Guidance Notes are intended to assist users of the ABS Guide for the Classification of Drilling Systems (CDS Guide) to deal with the drilling riser analysis to meet ABS CDS Guide requirement.

These Guidance Notes provide the latest recommended practices for typical types of analyses that may be required for a drilling riser. The actual types and scopes of analyses that will be required for a particular drilling riser will be decided on a project specific basis. In addition, considerations and suggestions are also provided in these Guidance Notes on important features of these analyses with sufficient details including evaluation parameters, approaches, procedure, modeling, and sample figures of results, etc.

The design acceptance guideline of a drilling riser is based on API RP 16Q, while the detail analysis process is provided in these Guidance Notes.

In these Guidance Notes, the word "Unit" is used in general to refer to the structure from which the drilling riser is deployed. In an actual case, that structure can be a Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit, Floating Production Installation, or other type of structure as considered in the CDS Guide.

These Guidance Notes become effective on the first day of the month of publication.

Users are advised to check periodically on the ABS website www.eagle.org to verify that this version of these Guidance Notes is the most current.

We welcome your feedback. Comments or suggestions can be sent electronically by email to rsd@eagle.org.
