Multiphase conditions can lead to high vibration in flexible pipe systems due to high dynamic flow induced forces. To better model the dynamic forces, large scale 6” air-water, near-atmospheric experiments have been done with different bend radii and upstream configurations. This paper gives an overview of the obtained results with respect to the overall dynamic force and force power spectral density description parameters. Scaling rules based on these experiments are given.
