The purpose of this paper is to review the progress made during the past two decades towards the structural modeling and the numerical approaches of a more realistic riser analysis. Two or three-dimensional, linear or nonlinear, either static or dynamic riser modelings are reviewed. Suitable numerical solution techniques for different kinds of modelings are discussed and compared.
