I have a problem to calculate a free flooding of offshore subsea pipeline. I would like to calculate it with as minimum aproximations as possible.The calculation is not so simple since the pressure in pipeline is changing as the pipeline is filled with water. The concept is to fill the pipeline from one side (deeper side)and to have a check valve at the other side. Any equation for a start or a spreadsheet? Thanks in advance, udaveu
