This work presents studies on the implementation and application of a specialized non-linear finite element for modeling of very flexible risers. Results of parametric analyses involving flexible risers are presented, and compared with those obtained by using classical truss or beam elements. The parametric study also includes the sensitivity to variation in mesh refinement. As a conclusion, the applicability of the modified truss element in structural analysis of flexible risers can be assessed.
