RE: Loads on Buried Pipes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The American Water Works Association ( has a standard C150
and a manual M41 that will help you evaluate the pipe. Reduced effective wall
thickness due to corrosion may be a consideration.

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
