Submarine pipelines commonly operate along coastlines for wastewater draining or for fluid transportation from platforms at deep waters. Depending on the installation area, they are subject to waves and currents and the common solution to improve the pipe stability is to cover them with bitumen or articulated concrete block mattresses. The aim of the present study is the investigation of wave-induced forces on the articulated concrete block mattress covering a submarine pipe, laid on seabed, by using a RANS numerical model.

Abstract

Submarine pipelines commonly operate along coastlines for wastewater draining or for fluid transportation from platforms at deep waters. Depending on the installation area, they are subject to waves and currents and the common solution to improve the pipe stability is to cover them with bitumen or articulated concrete block mattresses. The aim of the present study is the investigation of wave-induced forces on the articulated concrete block mattress covering a submarine pipe, laid on seabed, by using a RANS numerical model.
