Studies have been performed to propose reliability based design criteria for the installation of pipelines in the Bay of Campeche, Mexico. This paper summarizes formulations that were used to characterize the important Ultimate Limit State capacities of the pipelines during the installation period (collapse, bending, tension, combined, and propagating buckling). A large database of laboratory and numerical analysis ‘tests’ (more than 2,000 results) to determine pipeline capacities was assembled to help evaluate the Biases (ratio of measured/predicted capacities) in the analytical methods used to determine pipeline capacities. Given the formulations, target reliabilities, and installation demand characterizations summarized in a companion paper (Part 1), installation design criteria were developed for both Working Stress Design and Load and Resistance Factor Design formats.
