pipelines

K. Peters

The problem of upheaval or lateral buckling of pipelines not only occurs naturally for

offshore pipelines (due to reduced soil resistance and buoyancy forces), but also for

gathering and injection lines of oil and gas production fields (see e.g. Hisham

Saadawi [I]). Theories and special purpose calculation programs for offshore lines

have been developed by Palmer et al 12, 31 and Klever et ai [4] respectively.

Palmer et al's theorv assumes elasticallv ore-deformed oioelines and is desianed to

explicitly take advantage from this assumption which kidequate for offshok lines.

suitable to handle the rougher onshore profiles.

Chapter 1: Theories based on the local equilibrium of forces perpendicular to the

pipe axis are discussed, especially the theory of Palmer et al. Problems concerning

the general applicability already indicated by Palmer himself (see [2,3]) are reviewed.

Chapter 2: Within this chapter, the alternative approach is developed. The special feature is that the theory allows for a local lack

of soil resistance leading to a controlled elastic deformation. A simplified heuristic model is presented with the intention to clearly

demonstrate that the theory is of second order, and that piping programs not able to produce second order solutions may not be

used in solving Upheaval or Lateral Buckling problems.

Chapter 3: Criteria are derived for either aiiowabie deflection angles on a (Euier) buckling length in case of given soil resistances

or for the required soil resistances in case of given deflection angles on a buckling length. These criteria can be used for profile

design or control purposes. An essential advantage is that, compared to local equilibrium theories, the necessary knowledge

concerning the lateral or vertical trench profile is significantly reduced.

Chapter 4: A typical gas injection line is chosen to demonstrate an application and to exhibit the quantitative results to be

expected.

Due to the temperature and pressure loads, and due to friction between soil and pipe wall a compressive restraining force F,

is

For curved lines, the restraining force induces a line force q(x) perpendicular to the pipe line axis acting between pipeline and soil.

Definition: The profile h(x) is called an "Equilibrium Profile of the First Kind" if and only if R 2 Iq(x)l for each choice of x.

The well known theory of Palmer et al assumes that the alignment curve is gained by elastic deformation of the pipeline. Elementary beam theory delivers the following condition to establish local equilibrium:

Definition: The profile h(x) is called an "equilibrium profile of the Palmer type" if and only if equation (3) is fulfilled for each choice

of x.

With respect to upheaval buckling and elastic deformation h due to pipeline weight W(x) per unit length, we have the following

special situation:

d4h

El-(x)

dx4

Therefore and in the case of upheaval buckling, Palmer's equilibrium does not introduce a further relief. It is obviously always

allowed to take into account the pipeline weight as a resistance against upheaval buckling, also in the case of manufactured

overbends. The weight might be considered as a part of soil resistance.

Both types of equilibrium are "local" in the sense that for each position x the forces perpendicular to the pipe axis are balanced.

Assumina riaid-~lasticsoil resistance behaviour, no DiDeline deformation is needed to achieve eauilibrium. Formallv, no soil resistance is required in the case of a straight line. ~he'ciassicalbuckling problem is therefore not included, and the existence of a

lower limit Rmi.> 0 for the soil resistance is essential for the validity of local theories.

The real problem is to decide upon the higher differentialsof h(x). Ideas have been developed concerning dimensionless download and dimensionless imperfection length parameters gained for special profile types to characterise an allowed "roughness" of

a profile (see 121 and [3]). But it remains difficult to develop or control a profile with the help of these characteristic values. It is

sometimes proposed to gain the differentials of h by measurements of the trench sole or pipe top respectively. It is my opinion

that this is not a simple task due to the fact that higher order numerical differentiation based on discrete values is an operation of

extreme inaccuracy. The inaccuracy demands a smooth interpolation scheme as an intermediate step. The only interpolation of

physical significance is cubic spline interpolation hcs which simulates an elastic beam forced into the measured positions by forces P, concentrated at the measured chainage locations. As a consequence of the principle of minimum potential energy, this is

the interpolation of minimum integral curvature.

Therefore, and together with (2) and (3) for a local equilibrium:

Equations (2) and (6) show that, for practical purposes and depending on the interpolation scheme, the Palmer Equilibrium can

'develop" into an Equilibrium of the First Kind. The problem is attacked by Palmer et al by considering "typical" deformations.

For an Equilibrium Profile of the First Kind or an elastically pre-deformed pipeline in a trench of the Palmer type buckling is

obviously excluded and the pipeline is fixed. The loading via F, does not lead to any displacements. On the other hand it is not

always practicable to produce First Kind or Palmer equilibrium profiles for significantly loaded onshore pipelines. In general,

manufactured or field bends are involved. To deal with this problem is he intention of the theory to be developed. In this sense it

is an alternative t o the classical (Palmer) approach which is modelled for offshore pipelines usually laid without using manufactured bends or field bends.

The theories as described above rely on the local equilibrium of the forces perpendicular to the pipe axis. This approach is not

practicable if narrow bends or even mitre joints are involved. In this case, axial resistance by pipe bending has to be activated.

For sufficiently small bending radii r the local equilibrium is violated in any case. Therefore, a pipeline deflection f is provoked on a

It is important to recognise the difference between the equations (3) and (13):

Equation (3) 0.e. Palmer's equation) asks which soil resistance R is needed for local equilibrium if an elastic deformation h is given.

Equation (13)asks for the elastic deformation f ifthe local equilibrium is violated.

Due to symmetry, f may be developed into the ~ourier-series:

Equation (13) now allows to solve for L and the Fourier-coefficients An (n z 1):

Due to the fact that (25) is gained by the conservative assumption that height deflections might be realised also by mitre joints,

any reasonable interpolation h, (x) for measured profile data (x., hJ (e.g. cubic spline) is sufficient for the angles &,x) to be available:

It is worthwhile to remark the reducedprofile information employed compared to the informationneeded to apply local equilibrium

theories.

For the validity of (26), it is obviously to be assured that there is a reasonably small distance between measured chainage locations, e.g. about one or two buckling lengths.

A realistic example

The implications under (25) are especially useful to control the As-Built profiles of embedded pipelines. For onshore lines, the

height profile h(x) is usually documented by T(op)O(f)P(ipe) measurements once per spool.

As an example, a typical gas injection line as operated in oil fields is chosen:

It is obvious that, using an appropriate calculation tool (e.g. PI) able to produce e.g. cubic spline interpolation and to solve for 11,

an alignment profile can easily be controlled with respect to e.g. Upheaval Buckling once the table of TOP-height measurements

is available (see (26), (28)); or that (27) can be used to develop a profile specification.

A concluding remark

It is warned once again that first order calculations (although often used to control or specify alignment profiles) are in general
