OMAE2015 – A Finite Element Model

Whilst working together in S2V Consulting, Martin Teigen and Malik Ibrahim developed the paper “Investigation of the Behaviour of the Lateral Buckling Control Method – Reel-Lay Induced Imperfection”. The paper suggests a finite element model for lateral buckling analysis of pipelines installed with residual curvature. The paper is a result …

Video of Heat-Up

The following is a video that I made on the lateral buckling response of a pipeline installed with residual curvature. Unfortunaltely, the video is grainy and of poor quality, but I decided to publish this instead of spending time on video editing. The video shows a simulation of the structural response …

This is a blog that was established to facilitate research and expansion of knowledge around residual curvature installation, and what this method can offer to subsea pipeline design. The blog aims at addressing some of these findings, and getting in touch with the engineering community about the residual curvature method. The …
