Abstract:The continued developments of offshore oil and gas fields world wide and the drive for developing marine renewables has led to specific requirements for scour hazard assessment relating to the associated foundation structures, the cabling necessary for in-field transmission and power export and pipeline development. The adoption of a Scour Management Plan provides a framework for considering scour interaction during the design life of these seabed-founded structures. This paper presents a methodology for scour management based around an engineering model capable of predicting the development of scour evolution through time around an offshore structure (in this case a vertical pile) under current, wave and combined wave-current flows.
