Subject: Loads on Buried Pipes
I need a reference for evaluating a buried pipe subjected to surcharge
loads. Specifically, Ductile Iron Pipe. Mine is 48" diameter, buried
at least 5' below grade, and will be subjected to wheel loading. Does
anybody have a reference for this kind of evaluation?
Thanks in advance, Michael Ritter, PE
