A philosophy for design of submarine pipelines on the seabed to resist ocean forces is proposed. According to it, the pipeline response to hydrodynamic forces is calculated and the predicted response parameters are compared with the permitted values given by the design criteria. Some guidelines are given to achieve compatibility of individual elements in the design procedure.
