A floating production system is exposed to many different environmental conditions over its service life. Consequently, the long-term fatigue analysis of deepwater risers is computationally demanding due to the need to evaluate the fatigue damage from a multitude of sea states. Because of the nonlinearities in the system, the dynamic analysis is often performed in the time domain. This further compounds the computational difficulty owing to the time consuming nature of time domain analysis, as well as the need to simulate a sufficient duration for each sea state to minimize sampling variability. This paper presents a new and efficient simulation technique for long-term fatigue analysis. The results based on this new technique are compared against those obtained from the direct simulation of numerous sea states.
