The Recommended Practice DNVGL-RP-F110 gives guidance on how to design an exposed pipeline to buckle in a controlled manner in order to release the compressive axial effective forces caused by high temperature and pressure. Further, it gives guidance on how to design a trenched pipeline to stay in place, exposed to high compressive effective axial forces. The principles have been developed in a joint industry project involving leading oil companies and consultants.

Course description

The course will give an introduction to the design philosophy of the DNVGL-RP-F110, how it complements to the DNVGL-ST-F101, and gives specific requirements for global buckling scenarios of HT/HP pipelines.

Learning objective

Understand how to design new and assess existing pipelines, with respect to global buckling of HP/HT pipelines.

  • The causes the compressive forces
  • The relevant failure modes for global buckling
  • Limitation of loads
  • Design solution for both exposed and buried pipelines.

Target group

Pipeline engineers that will perform design activities, or want an insight in design challenges of HP/HT pipelines.
