Mechanics of Offshore Pipelines: Volume 2: Buckle Propagation and Arrest explains various aspects of buckle propagation, including inspection, the installation of key equipment, and maintenance and mitigation. In addition, chapters cover design recommendations for buckle propagation avoidance, manufacturer guides to prevent buckling, a review of the application of arrestors to apply for pipe buckling propagation, and an explanation on how to extend the service life of the pipes that are most vulnerable to buckling. Rounding out with case studies and supportive experimental data, this book explains all the detailed elements and practical solutions for today’s offshore pipeline projects.
Approx. 350 illustrations (20 in full color)
