Youssef, B., Cassidy, M., (2014), “Calibration of Verley and Sotberg Soil Resistance Model for Pipelines Placed on Calcareous Soils” 24th International Ocean and Polar Engineering Conference, Korea, International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE)

On-bottom stability of subsea pipelines has been the focus of substantial research in recent years with particular emphasis on the topic of pipe-soil interaction. Numerous models have been developed to predict the pipe-soil interaction behavior under combined vertical and horizontal loading scenarios. The Verley and Sotberg energy based soil resistance model for silica sand is […]

Godbold, J., Sackmann, N., Cheng, L. (2014). “Stability Design for Concrete Mattresses,” 24th International Ocean and Polar Engineering Conference, Korea, International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE)

Concrete mattresses are widely used within the offshore industry for scour control, stabilisation and protection. There is currently no uniform industry methodology for concrete mattress stability design for any application of concrete mattresses. This paper reviews design works previously carried out for a project in the North West Shelf of Australia and proposes an industry […]

Jas, E., Harvey, C., (2013), “Expanding APIA’s Pipeline Engineer Training Program – Offshore Competencies”, 47th Annual Convention of the Australian Pipeline Industry Association, Adelaide

In 2010 APIA (Now the Australian Pipelines & Gas Association, APGA) published its Pipeline Engineer Competency Standards, which set out the definitions of competency across the breadth of pipeline engineering roles. It identified 230 Competencies and wrote up 91 of these in detail. However, these Competency Standards, while they left a place marker for offshore […]
