Model tests of lateral loading for surface pipelines on sand

Abstract:

Offshore pipelines are often placed on the seabed surface. For these pipelines the stress induced by thermal expansion, caused by the hot products being transported, can lead to cases of lateral buckling. An accurate assessment of the pipeline's susceptibility to buckling, and therefore an assessment of the pipeline's structural integrity, requires accurate modelling of the pipe-soil interaction, particularly for lateral pipe motions. Previous studies find that the pipe's lateral resistance i...
