Godbold, J.E., Sackmann, N.L., (2014) “Scour Protection for Subsea Structures”, 7th International Conference on Scour and Erosion 2014, Perth, (ICSE)

Scour around subsea structures is an ongoing issue for the oil and gas industry. The design of effective scour protection systems is important for the integrity of the subsea structure. This paper presents a methodology for the design of scour protection systems for subsea structures, discussing different options and the difference between static and dynamic stability design approaches. A case study is presented which has utilised this design methodology in order to assure the design will meet the required design criteria.
