Abstract

The design of subsea pipelines in arctic and sub-arctic regions must consider the potential hazards of ice features such as icebergs and ice ridges. This paper describes an analytical model to predict scouring loads generated by an iceberg keel scouring a cohesionless seabed and deals with the issues that arises from testing under 1 g conditions with small scale models; using the same particle size as the prototype, soil response at low stress levels, 3D effects of the soil failure mode and the rate effect in sands are discussed.
