SPIDA METHOD FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE PIPE DESIGN

The SPIDA was developed after several years research and testng to develop improved methods for determining earth loads and pressure distributions on buried concrete pipe. This paper discusses the quantitative differences between results obtained with the SPIDA method and the indirect design methods. The indirect method described here was develped using the SAMM (Spangler and Marston Method) program. The differences between the various design methods are demonstrated by analyzing an actual installation with both methods. The finite analyses are completed with the computer program SPIDA (Soil Pipe Interaction Design and Analysis).
