Abstract: The hydrodynamic pressures induced by regular waves around the circumference of a pipeline normal to the wave direction and near a rigid bed of slope 1:10 have been investigated in a wave flume. The pressures were integrated to obtain the force time history, from which the peak horizontal and vertical forces are evaluated. The maximum and root mean square horizontal and transverse force coefficients are correlated with the Keulegan-Carpenter (KC) number. The effect of the distance between the sloping bed and the pipeline on the force coefficients is discussed. The force coefficients are found to decrease with an increase in KC number and with the decrease in the relative clearance of the pipeline from the boundary. In addition, the reflection characteristics of the sloping bed in the presence of the pipeline as a function of surf similarity parameter and their comparison with the results from existing literature are also reported. The details of the model setup, experimental procedure, results and discussion are presented in this paper. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
