The purpose of this paper is to investigate suspended sediment transport around a marine pipeline near the seabed by solving the Unsteady Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (URANS) equations with the standard k-ε model. High Reynolds number flow simulations are considered in the present study. The suspended sediments are seeded upstream of the pipeline. Particle trajectories of the suspended sediments downstream of the pipeline have been visualized by using a Lagrangian approach. Effects of the gap (i.e. the normal distance between the pipeline and the seabed) and the sediment weight (i.e. taking into account sediment settling velocity) have been investigated and discussed.
