Subsea Pipeline Engineering, Second Edition



SKU: ISBN 1-59370-133-8 Category:


Subsea Pipeline Engineering was the first book of its kind, covering the entire spectrum of subjects in the discipline, from route selection and planning to design, construction, installation, materials and corrosion, inspection, welding, repair, risk assessment, and applicable design codes and standards. Written by two of the world’s most respected authorities in subsea pipeline engineering, this newly updated second edition contains expanded sections on hydraulics, strength, stability, fracture, upheaval, lateral buckling and decommissioning. The book is distilled from the authors’ vast experience in the industry and their popular training course “Subsea Pipeline Engineering.”
