Pipeline upheaval buckling in liquefiable soils

Abstract:

This paper summarises research exploring the upheaval buckling of buried pipelines in saturated sand, focusing on loose and liquefiable soil conditions. This problem is relevant to offshore oil and gas pipelines. A series of plane-strain uplift tests were conducted to explore drained and partially drained pipe-soil behaviour, using a rig that simulates the jet-trenching installation method. The experimental force-displacement response was used in a numerical study to examine the effect on the...
