Youssef, B., O’Brien, D. (2017) “On-Bottom Stability Analysis of Submarine Pipelines, Umbilicals and Cables Using 3D Dynamic Modelling”, Offshore Technology Conference 2017, Houston, (OTC)

Submarine pipelines and umbilicals are essential elements of many offshore hydrocarbon developments. In general, the most economical approach is to lay the pipelines and umbilicals directly on the seafloor with adequate self-weight to avoid any requirement to perform secondary stabilisation work such as trenching. A fundamental design requirement for this scenario is to ensure adequate […]
