This paper details work that was conducted during the retrieval and subsequent re-installation of the Banff riser system between September 2000 and March 2001. Originally, deterministic methods were used to design the riser system. It is demonstrated that these methods may not be conservative when compared against stochastic techniques. To ensure a conservative design methodology it is necessary to fully account for the inherent dynamic frequency content of the riser. This is usually achieved using non-linear time domain irregular sea techniques. Time domain irregular sea analysis is computationally expensive in terms of resources and time. This paper presents the results of an alternative method of solution based on the frequency domain approach. Excellent agreement between the results of the time and frequency domain is observed.
