A deep-ocean mining riser pipe is subjected to floating vessel motion as well as environmental forces arising from currents and waves. The dynamic analysis is carried out for a deep-ocean mining riser pipe by using a finite element method. The vortex shedding which excites risers in a direction perpendicular to the flow and induces transverse response is considered. It is demonstrated that transverse displacements due to vortex shedding is greatly increased in lock-in regions. The result of this study is compared with other results having good agreements.
