Pipe uplift in saturated sand: rate and density effects

Abstract:

A key parameter for assessing the unburial behaviour of offshore pipelines, such as during upheaval buckling, is the soil uplift resistance. Despite much research on uplift response, two variables remain relatively unexplored: the effect of low relative density backfill and partially drained soil response. To address this shortcoming, an investigation into the plane-strain uplift resistance of pipe segments in saturated sand was carried out. The model tests, targeting drained and partially dr...
