Offshore oil and gas production was conducted throughout the entire 20th century, but the industry's modern importance and vibrancy did not start until the early 1970s, when the North Sea became a major producer. Since then, the expansion of the offshore oil industry has been continuous and rapid. Pipelines, and more generally long tubular structures, are major oil and gas industry tools used in exploration, drilling, production, and transmission. Installing and operating tubular structures in deep waters places unique demands on them. Technical challenges within the field have spawned significant research and development efforts in a broad range of areas. Volume I addresses problems of buckling and collapse of long inelastic cylinders under various loads encountered in the offshore arena. Several of the solutions are also directly applicable to land pipelines. The approach of Mechanics of Offshore Pipelines is problem oriented. The background of each problem and scenario are first outlined and each discussion finishes with design recommendations. * New and classical problems addressed - investigated through a combination of experiments and analysis * Each chapter deals with a specific mechanical problem that is analyzed independently * The fundamental nature of the problems makes them also applicable to other fields, including tubular components in nuclear reactors and power plants, aerospace structures, automotive and civil engineering structures, naval vehicles and structures

Buckle propagation is a problem unique to offshore pipelines, in which the local collapse of a locally weakened section of the pipe initiates a collapse that propagates at high speed catastrophically flattening the line by kilometers. The lowest pressure that can sustain the propagation of the collapse, the propagation pressure, is only a small fraction of the collapse pressure of the intact pipe. The large difference between these two pressures requires that pipelines be designed on the collapse pressure, and the extent of the potential catastrophic damage suffered is limited by the periodic introduction of buckle arrestors to the line. Volume 2 of the book series Mechanics of Offshore Pipelines addresses the major aspects of buckle propagation including its initiation, establishment of the propagation pressure, and the dynamics of buckle propagation. Buckle propagation under tension, in pipe-in-pipe pipeline systems, and confined buckle propagation in tubulars such as grouted casing are examined in dedicated chapters. Three chapters deal with the performance of the most commonly used buckle arrestors under both quasi-static and dynamic buckle propagation. Each of these problems is studied through experiments, analyses, and large-scale numerical simulations. The results are used to provide empirical design equations and design guidelines on how to mitigate the effects of buckle propagation. Buckle propagation and arrest approached from both fundamental and applied points of view Provides data, empirical design formulae, and design guidelines Teaches how to analyze buckle propagation and mitigate its effects through experiment and modeling Based on the 40-year research and practice of the most eminent researcher in the subject

Introducing a new practical approach within the field of applied mechanics developed to solve beam strength and bending problems using classical beam theory and beam modeling, this outstanding new volume offers the engineer, scientist, or student a revolutionary new approach to subsea pipeline design. Integrating use of the Mathematica program into these models and designs, the engineer can utilize this unique approach to build stronger, more efficient and less costly subsea pipelines, a very important phase of the world's energy infrastructure. Significant advances have been achieved in implementation of the applied beam theory in various engineering design technologies over the last few decades, and the implementation of this theory also takes an important place within the practical area of re-qualification and reassessment for onshore and offshore pipeline engineering. A general strategy of applying beam theory into the design procedure of subsea pipelines has been developed and already incorporated into the ISO guidelines for reliability-based limit state design of pipelines. This work is founded on these significant advances. The intention of the book is to provide the theory, research, and practical applications that can be used for educational purposes by personnel working in offshore pipeline integrity and engineering students. A must-have for the veteran engineer and student alike, this volume is an important new advancement in the energy industry, a strong link in the chain of the world's energy production.

Upheaval Buckling of Offshore Pipelines in Homogeneous and Layered Soils

Upheaval Buckling of Offshore Pipelines in Homogeneous and Layered Soils

Offshore oil and gas pipelines are commonly buried below the seabed to provide environmental stability and protection. Many of these pipelines are prone to upheaval buckling following burial. Soil failure mechanisms can extend to the surface (shallow) or remain localised within the soil body (deep); the exact conditions that cause this transition are currently unclear. In very weak soils, rock fill or sand berms are added to the surface of the completed trench after burial, to increase the required pull-out capacity. Despite a relatively large body of research existing in the literature, much confusion still exists as to the appropriate design parameters and failure mechanisms involved for different homogeneous soils. The most appropriate approach for upheaval bucking design in layered materials is even less clear. A literature review on the upheaval buckling of buried pipelines in cohesive, granular and layered materials was conducted, to identify issues of importance in the design process and appropriate failure mechanisms of soil around uplifting pipelines. A program of scaled physical models were carried out with synthetic clay (Glyben), sand and gravel, as single homogeneous and layered materials, addressing the quantification of the uplift behaviour of buried offshore pipelines. Soil deformation measurements were studied using the models, employing the particle image velocimetry (PIV) technique to investigate the velocity fields and failure mechanisms. Numerical finite element analyses were conducted to study the resistance of undrained soils against upheaval buckling of buried pipelines to aid interpretation of the laboratory pullout tests and conduct further parametric studies. Current state-of-the-art in upheaval buckling pipeline design was assessed; guidance for the design of buried pipelines for clays, granular soils and layered soils is provided and some aspects of uncertainty in this area are discussed.
