DEVELOPMENTS IN WATER SCIENCE, 6. PIPELINE DESIGN FOR WATER ENGINEERS. CHAPTER 6. EXTERNAL LOADS

The need is stated for the design of low pressure pipes to withstand external as well as internal loads. Methods are presented for calculating stresses acting upon pipes in trench and under embankment conditions, in different states of projection. Superimposed loads provided by traffic are considered, and formulae for evaluating the transmitted surface point load, or a pressure of limited or infinite extent are included. Reference is made to the effect of rigid pavements on an applied load. The author considers the bending and deformation of circular pipes under load, and equations are provided for the calculation of pipe deflection with and without lateral support. (TRRL)
