Lateral buckling of pipelines is a well known problem. The paper presents results from displacement-controlled tests on models with negligible initial embedment, on dense sand, using a pipe with measurements of both lateral loads and pipe torsion. The results show that depending on weight and movement of the pipe the torsional moment can be substantial. Different failure patterns were observed during the tests.
