An analytical model of expansion movements at the ends of pipelines is developed. A comparison with measurements on two North Sea pipelines shows that the analysis is consistent with observed behavior, and can be used to assess the results of corrective action. An alternative mechanism, creep deformation within the corrosion coating, is analyzed briefly.
