of rational parameters of the developed compensating device of a
triangular shape by calculation and experimental investigation methods
is considered in the article. The proposed compensating device with the
bent taps use has a more rigid design than the compensating device in
the form of a broken bolt. Consequently, the correction coefficient of
the compensator form, structurally executed with the use of bent taps
is received by calculation and experimental methods for decreasing the
longitudinal compressive force arising from the temperature drop to the
ensuring level of the overall pipeline stability in the longitudinal
direction, which allows to determine its rational parameters and is
taken to be k = 0.85. The condition is obtained for determining the
rational parameters of the proposed compensating device for underwater
pipeline transitions in order to increase the overall stability in the
longitudinal direction. In addition, the patented technology of laying
the proposed compensating device is shown.
