SIMPLIFIED CALCULATION OF THE EFFECTS OF OVALISATION IN PRESTRESSED CONCRETE PIPES PLACED IN AN EXCAVATED TRENCH

CALCULO SIMPLIFICADO DE LAS ACCIONES OVALIZANTES EN LAS TUBERIAS DE HORMIGON PRETENSADO COLOCADAS EN ZANJAS.

Simplified formulae are presented for the rapid determination of the bending moments and normal stresses in typical sections of prestressed concrete pipes placed in a trench. A study is conducted of the effects of the weight of the pipe itself, the water which it contains, the weight and the pressure of the backfill soil in the trench and of the pressure on the bearing surface. /TRRL/
