Experimental modeling of the unburial behaviour of pipelines

Abstract:

Submarine pipelines are used to transport hot crude oil or gas from satellite production fields to a central offshore production platform. These pipelines are commonly laid in trenches that are subsequently backfilled, so that they are protected from damage and to gain additional thermal insulation from the surrounding soil. A discussion covers the interaction of a buried pipeline and the surrounding soil during various unburial processes; upheaval buckling; pipeline floatation; failure mecha...
