This paper discusses a nonlinear analytical model for flexible pipe crushing analysis, improving analytical models previously published in OMAE2003, 2010 and 2011. Following that path, and still based on the concept of equivalent pipes and rings, the present model discusses a strategy to cope with an elastic-to-plastic analysis. Such a model considers the combined action of squeezing and concentrated loads applied as representing those due to the caterpillar shoes. Experimental results and finite element analysis are used to assess the pertinence of analytical modeling hypotheses.
