Design of Marine Risers with Functionally Graded Materials focuses on the application and use of marine risers fabricated with functionally graded materials (FGM) in ocean environments. Chapters cover the various types of marine risers available, common problems (corrosion), their fabrication and manufacturing, and their application and use in marine risers. A functionally graded materials mould is then subsequently investigated by various structural and metallurgical examinations to assess its suitability as an alternate material in the marine environment. Several characteristics of the newly developed FGM are compared with other conventional materials to explicitly highlight the superiority of the newly developed FGM.

Further chapters focus on novel design methods, such as VIV suppression systems for risers with detailed experimental investigations carried out on cylinders and a chapter on advanced materials, including titanium and composites and their application and use in the marine environment.
