Centrifuge tests have been performed at the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems in order to investigate the performance of a rock protection poured into a trench to safeguard pipelines against the dragging of vessel anchors. The results provided reliable and useful information about the size and shape of the trench and the grading curve of the rock protection, and this has assisted in the design of a gas pipeline project in China.
