DESIGN OF PIPE CULVERTS FROM STANDPOINT OF SOIL MECHANICS

THE PURPOSE IS TO GIVE A REVIEW (1) OF EXISTING METHODS OF ANALYSIS OF EXTERNAL FORCES ACTING ON HIGHWAY PIPE CULVERTS AND (2) OF SOME EXPERIMENTS ALONG THESE LINES. THESE METHODS AND EXPERIMENTS ARE EXAMINED USING SIMPLE STATICS WITH ADDITION OF SOME ELEMENTARY CONCEPTS OF THE MECHANICS OF EARTH MASSES, SUCH AS LIMIT EQUILIBRIUM OR ACTIVE AND PASSIVE PRESSURE. NO ATTEMPT HAS BEEN MADE TO PROPOSE A NEW THEORY. /AUTHOR/
