During regular inspection, hair-line cracks were discovered in the weld of this flare. Immediately the welding was repaired. To prevent recurrence the expertise of Flow Engineering was enlisted. Flow Engineering measured the resonance frequency and received the construction drawings of the flare, with which we were able to design a Tuned mass Damper.
No recurrence of hail-line cracks has been reported since the installation of the TMD.
