Scope
 
The scope of this document is to give a general introduction on the subject of subsea pipelines, withreference to design codes as used by the industry. The document covers most important aspects of analysisand design of subsea pipelines, but it should be noted that some less important topics are left out. Whereapplicable, the theory and/or experimental data behind code provisions is discussed with reference toavailable technical literature. The main topics are Mechanical design, on-bottom stability, free spanning andinstallation of subsea pipelines.
