The response on sandy seabed sediments to a harmonically oscillating water-table, with a special consideration of the wave-induced pore-pressure oscillations around a pipeline buried in seabed sediments, is studied in the present work experimentally and numerically. The aim of the analysis was: (1) to observe a true distribution pattern of the wave-induced pore-pressure oscillations acting on the pipeline outer surface, and (2) to verify small-scale test results using numerical computations performed for a wide range of saturation conditions of seabed sediments, under the assumption of a compressible two-phase medium compound of the pore-fluid and soil skeleton, as well as a finite thickness of a permeable seabed layer.
