Structural Mechanics of Buried Pipes

by Reynold King Watkins
and Loren Runar Anderson


  • Analyzes a variety of pipe-soil interaction problems

  • Uses examples from actual buried structures

  • Introduces finite element analysis based on nonlinear soil properties

  • Includes examples and basic mechanics -serves as a self-study guide

Structural Mechanics of Buried Pipes minimizes complicated theories, breaks through the imprecisions in the properties of soil, and presents principles that simplify analysis and lead to designs of higher performance and safety.

With knowledge built on experience, experimentation, and sound principles, the authors guide readers through the design and analysis processes. They use examples based on actual buried structures and analyze a variety of pipe-soil interaction problems.

Sound principles, plentiful examples, and a straightforward presentation provide an outstanding framework for hands-on application and an ideal self-study guide.
