Yong BAI works on structural analysis and design with a focus on pipelines, risers and floating systems. Yong had been leading several Asgard Transport pipeline and flowline projects at JP Kenny Norway office as its Manager of Advanced Engineering Dept. Previously Yong had been a lead riser engineer at Shell EP Projects, and led offshore rules development at the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) as its Manager of the Offshore Technology Dept. While a professor, he wrote books entitled "Subsea Pipelines and Risers" and "Marine Structural Design" and served as a course leader for IBC and Clarion courses on Design of Pipelines and Risers and Design of Floating Systems. Yong is President of Offshore Pipelines & Risers (OPR) Inc., a design/consulting firm in the field of pipelines, risers and floating systems.

Subsea Pipelines and Risers
This book summarizes the author's 23 years research and engineering experience at engineering companies, universities, classification societies and design offices. It is an extension of the author's previous book, Pipelines & Risers.
Chapters on Risers have been greatly expanded to cover new developments in analysis, design, testing, inspection and monitoring. New chapters on Flow Assurance have been added, addressing subsea system engineering, hydraulics, heat transfer and thermal insulation, hydrate, wax, and asphaltines, and corrosion prevention.
The book is suitable as a both a textbook for graduate students and a reference for practicing engineers, as it includes design guidelines for engineers and references for researchers. It may also be used in the design of offshore structures, as it details applied mechanics and design/engineering. The book was originally produced in response to developments in research and engineering and the publication of new design codes. Subsea Pipelines and Risers fills a significant gap in training of pipeline engineers and provides materials for on-job training in the use of new design codes and guides.
