VIV (Vortex Induced Vibration) Strakes

  • Current flow around a pipeline can result in vibration created by vortex shedding.
  • The frequency of this vibration can become close to the natural frequency of the pipe, which can cause fatigue or damage the pipeline.
  • CRP Subsea offer several solutions to suppress Vortex Induced Vibration (VIV), including PU VIV strakes, roto-moulded strakes and thermoformed strakes (Tri-Strakes®).
