Small scale gouge tests were designed and executed at the University of Stavanger in Norway as a part of master thesis work. A box (2.5 × 2.5 m) was filled with soft sandy silt and several gouge tests were performed. The subgouge soil deformations, the soil mound dimensions and the ratio between initial and residual gouge depth were measured under varying gouge parameters. Vaneshear and T-bar tests were used to estimate soil properties. A pipe segment was buried under the gouge and strains in the pipe were monitored in some of the tests. Test results are presented in this paper, including FE simulations of some of the performed experiments.
