FOUNDATION STABILITY OF BURIED OFFSHORE PIPELINES. A SURVEY OF PUBLISHED LITERATURE

A literature survey dealing with foundation stability of buried offshore pipelines was conducted as preliminary to a laboratory investigation of scour around pipelines by wave action. Pipeline alignment, beach stability, soil type, wave parameters and scour are discussed as well as pipe flotation and need for soil exploration. A new idea of pipe anchoring is mentioned as well as recommendations for future research. Abstracts of the more important papers are presented, and annotated bibliography and references are given in the Appendix.
