A design engineer-oriented approach to determining the pipeline dynamic response to ocean forces accounting for complex environmental and pipeline conditions is presented. The described analysis yields time histories of pipeline motion and steel pipe stresses induced by water motion. Sinusoidal variation of normal water particle motion in time and along the pipeline, waves, flexural rigidity of pipe, damaged concrete coating, among other effects, are accounted for in the mathematical model.
