Sand management RP, DNVGL-RP-0501 Managing sand production and erosion

First issued in 1996, the updated RP now includes new guidance on the development, implementation and follow-up of a high-level sand management strategy. It also provides more background material for erosion response models. The RP includes the following main updates:

- An outline and list of considerations for a sand management strategy
- New guidance on the erosion model for flexible pipes with interlock carcass
- New erosion models for choke valves
- Erosion model validation cases
- Guidance on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) erosion modelling
