Subsea pipelines have been widely used to transfer oil from platforms to the mainland near harbor anchorage zone, and they become increasingly susceptible to risks stemming from dropped object impact damages. The impact from dropped objects may lead to local deformation and fracture in the pipeline and vast economic and environmental consequences. In this research, the responses of continuously supported offshore pipelines subjected to transverse impacts caused by dropped objects are studied… CONTINUE READING
