|Major benefits of using DTI Bend Stiffener Connectors|
|The BSC connectors are manufactured in three standard sizes with customizable end interfaces depending on the requirement. The sizes and load specification is included in Table 1. However the design is easily scalable to meet any Load / Functional requirements. The current maximum static bending load capacity is upto 800,000 FT.-LB. (for 30” Connector)|
|Table 1 : Standard sizes and corresponding load rating of BSCs.
|Detailed FEA analysis is conducted on the BSC for structural integrity in static load conditions as well as fatigue loading. Figure 3 shows a FEA image of the analysis conducted on the funnel and the shaft assembly of the Bend stiffener connector.|
