    Lateral Buckling Analysis of Offshore Pipelines

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Heidari, Hamed (Author) ; Ghoreishi, Reza (Supervisor) ; Abbaspour, Madjid (Supervisor)
    This project deals with the global buckling in high pressure/high temperature (HP/HT) subsea pipelines. Some subsea pipelines are laid directly on the seabed. Large axial forces will generally cause an exposed pipeline to buckle sideways, or laterally, on the seabed. Pipelines may significantly expand during start-up and shutdown cycles, resulting in global buckle formation with high out-of-straightness (OOS).This global buckling behavior may be unacceptable if it is not properly managed. Global buckling mitigation can be achieved by providing controlled lateral movements of pipeline. Buckle mitigation devices are installed along the pipeline to provide buckle initiation sites, there by...
