In this paper, the mechanical model to analyze the riser lateral vibration displacement and stress distribution in installation has been established via variational approach and the principle of minimum potential energy. In this model, the influence of vessel motion on riser lateral vibration has been taken into consideration. The specific expression of lateral vibration has also been figured out according to the boundary conditions and initial conditions. At last, the variations of riser maximum lateral displacement and stress distribution on water depth (WD), wave height, wave period, riser OD, BOPS weight have been discussed.
