Abstract: Flow induced instability analysis of long, fiber-reinforced pipes, used for deep-sea mining applications is performed. The transfer matrix method is implemented to the motion equation of a multi-layered anisotropic pipe for critical flow velocity calculation. The mechanical properties of the laminated material as well as the mass of the hanged pump and the flow parameters are taken into account. Numerical results of representative examples are provided and discussed.

Keywords: deep-sea mining, flow-induced instability, FRP pipes, composite materials.
