Stab-In Pipe Stage 2

People Involved

Project Description

This is Stage 2 of a project to design and develop new non-threaded drill pipe joints. .

Stage 2 will be related to 3D printing of conceptual design of snap latch based non-threaded tool joints, electromagnetic calculations and further design and analysis for appropriate engagement and disengagement mechanism of snap latch.

Stage 1 was joint funded by Stab-in Pipe Ltd and OGIC. The outcomes of Stage 1 includes:
a) review of existing design and proposal for new design
b) computer aided design and finite element static stress analysis of the non-threaded drill pipe connector
c) material selection and design optimisation.

In partnership with Stab-In Pipe Ltd

Thermally sprayed metamaterial coatings for photovoltaic energy harvesting applications (#themetacoat) Nov 15, 2018 - Jul 31, 2019
Metamaterials, an artificial periodic two- or three-dimensional configuration, can change propagation characteristics of electromagnetic waves, which in return can cause wave energy to get absorbed into the material. Taking this idea forward, we intro... Read More about Thermally sprayed metamaterial coatings for photovoltaic energy harvesting applications (#themetacoat).
