Submarine pipelines laid on the bottom in coastal depths, and in the presence of sizable long waves or swell, may have large forces exerted upon them by the water particle motion associated with surface fluctuations. Results of model tests on wave forces on pipelines and the applicability of such results to the real world are discussed. Pertinent wave-force information at large Reynolds numbers is still needed and perhaps best obtained through actual ocean experiments.
