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
