Finite element modelling procedures to simulate the pipeline mechanical response during reel lay installation are calibrated from the available literature. A three-dimensional continuum model was developed to simulate the bending and straightening processes during reel lay installation and was compared with physical tests conducted within a bending rig and four-point bending test frame. A range of pipeline diameters, wall thicknesses, material grades and weld offsets are examined.
