THE EFFECT OF THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT ON THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF SUBMARINE PIPELINES
The discussion covers the unique features of submarine pipelines; methods of laying pipelines in deep water and the constraints imposed by the environment; conventional pipelaying methods and recent improvements in them; pipelaying with buoys of variable buoyancy; bottom and surface data needed for submarine pipelaying; and the application of the theory of wave action in paying out the pipe.
