FLEXIBLE CULVERTS UNDER HIGH FILLS - EQUILIBRIUM CONSIDERATIONS

THIS REPORT ON LOADS ON FLEXIBLE CULVERTS ON HIGH FILLS CONSIDERS ONLY EQUILIBRIUM STATES OF THE FLEXIBLE CULVERT AND IGNORES THE PROBLEM OF BUCKLING. IT IS ESSENTIALLY A REFINEMENT OF AN EARLIER ANALYSIS BY THE SAME AUTHORS OF RIGID PIPE. COMPARISONS WERE MADE WITH FIELD TEST RESULTS AND STATEMENTS ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF CONSTRUCTION METHODS, CULVERT RIGIDITY AND BASE MATERIAL WERE POSSIBLE. THE AUTHORS CONCLUDE THAT THE FINAL PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION COULD BE GRAVELY AFFECTED BY THE INITIAL CONFIGURATION AND ITS SUBSEQUENT MOTION. /BPR/
