The objective of this paper is to present solutions for the linear dynamics of flexible risers using a novel combination of efficient embedding and asymptotic techniques. Numerical examples for a buoyant flexible riser are included and the effects of the principal parameters are discussed. Finally, a numerical scheme employing the linear solutions to develop a solution of the nonlinear problem is outlined.
