Sandwich pipes have been considered feasible conceptions for ultra deepwater pipelines, since they are capable to work at low temperatures and withstand high hydrostatic pressures. Sandwich pipelines are composed by inner and outer metallic pipes and a suitable core material which must provide high compression strength and good thermal insulation. The aim of this ongoing research is to study the quasi-static propagation of buckles in sandwich pipes. In this paper, a three-dimensional finite element model considering material and geometric nonlinear behavior is presented. The mesh discretization is determined through a detailed mesh sensitivity analysis. Some experiments with small scale models combining aluminum pipes and polypropylene as core material were carried out to calibrate the numerical model. The propagation pressure is evaluated under different bonding conditions between pipe layers.
