This paper compares model test data for risers with partial strake coverage to predictions made with the Vortex-Induced Vibration (VIV) prediction program SHEAR7 Versions 4.5 and 4.6. It is shown that new features in Version 4.6 substantially enhance the capability for predicting the VIV response of risers with partial coverage. Experimental data is taken from two large L/D tests: the NDP 38 m long riser tests and the Deepstar-Miami, 500 foot long riser. New methods are described for modeling risers partially covered with helical strakes. Key SHEAR7 parameters are recommended, based on parametric investigations to calibrate the model against the available experimental data. Recommended modeling procedures are described so as to facilitate implementation by SHEAR7 users in their VIV modeling tasks.
