    Abstract

    Results from an advanced 3-dimensional Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model have proven to form an effective basis on which to design stable and scour resistant subsea structures in areas of seabed which are prone to scouring. A case study application from the UK sector of the southern North Sea is presented to demonstrate the benefits of the CFD analysis. Copyright © 2010 by ASME.
