Design and Installation of Buried Pipes

Purpose and Background:

Engineering science now allows us to design and construct efficient, durable underground pipelines with the same precision as we can build aboveground structures. But there is one big difference. An aboveground structure is a structure by itself and is designed to carry all the loads imposed. Most buried pipes rely in some way on interaction with the surrounding soil to carry loads. Virtually all buried pipes depend on proper soil support, and therefore proper installation, to provide good structural performance.

This practical video examines principles of pipe and soil interaction, and construction of the pipe-soil system. It demonstrates some of the assumptions that designers make about external loads on buried pipe, and how installers must construct the system as designed to assure proper performance. An accompanying Resource Book expands on these topics and directs you to further sources of information. You should use the 45-minute video and the book together.

Good pipe design and good pipe installation depend on each other. This video will assist designers in designing what can be built in the field and provide contractors with an understanding of how the pipe-soil system was designed and what they can do to create that system. Pipelines that are properly designed, constructed and installed will ensure long-lasting performance for many generations.

Developed in conjunction with leading engineers Tim McGrath and Amster Howard, this information-packed video demonstrates the fundamentals of pipe-soil interaction, how soil and pipe behavior should be jointly considered in design, and how proper construction methods can achieve design assump- tions in the field.

Who Will Benefit from This Video:

Design engineers, project managers, construction foremen, public works engi- neers, construction managers, soil testing personnel, pipeline owners, contrac- tors, specification writers, construction inspectors, and anyone else involved in pipe design, construction, and installation will benefit from this video.

Special Features

Accompanying the video is a Resource Book . The Resource Book presents, in a text format, much of the information in the video, but supplements it with additional useful information, such as a glossary of terminology related to buried pipe, names and addresses of organizations that can be contacted for more informa- tion, bibliography of important books, standards, and articles, and some additional discussion of design issues that are presented in the video. The Resource Book can be used with the video, but it will also be useful as an independent desk reference.

Technical Advisors and Authors of Resource Book:

TIM MCGRATH is Principal of Simpson, Gumpertz & Heger, Inc., Arlington, MA. Mr. McGrath has spent his entire career working on issues related to the behavior and design of all types of culverts and pipe. Much of this work has been related to soil-structure interaction issues associated with culverts and the performance of culvert materials.

In 1980 he was co-author of NCHRP Report 225 Underground Plastic Pipe for Drainage of Transportation Facilities, the first AASHTO study of plastic pipe. In the 1980s, he did extensive work on concrete pipe, participating in the development of the first direct design method of concrete pipe reinforce-

ment and the development of current AASHTO Specifications for concrete pipe. He consults regularly on culvert and pipe performance issues and has lectured widely on the design and installation of culverts. He is currently working on NCHRP projects related to the design of large-span culverts and the performance of corrugated HDPE culverts. Mr. McGrath received a BS in Civil Engineering from Northeastern University in 1973 and a MS in Civil Engineer- ing from MIT in 1975, both degrees focused on structural engineering. He completed his PhD in Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Massachu- setts in 1998. He is active in ASTM, ASCE, AWWA and TRB committees related to culverts.

AMSTER HOWARD is a Consultant in Lakewood, CO. Amster Howard conducted research on buried pipe and did extensive troubleshooting for pipe installation projects for over 30 years for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. Mr. Howard participated in preparing specifications, training inspectors, and writing instal- lation manuals for pipe ranging in diameter from 2 inches to 25 feet. As a result of his research into the behavior of buried flexible pipe, the Bureau of Reclamation developed a table of “E prime” values that has been adopted by AWWA, ASTM, and ASCE for use in the Iowa Formula to calculate the deflection of buried flexible pipe. Now retired, he is a private consulting civil engineer. He is the author of numerous technical papers about buried pipe research, soil-cement dam facings, flowable fill for pipelines, soil classification, and soil test procedures and the principal author of eight ASTM standards for soil testing and soil classification. He is also the author of the book “Pipeline Installation,” a manual for construction of buried pipe. In 1996, Amster Howard was the recipient of the Stephen D. Bechtel Pipeline Engineering Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers.

This video demonstrates important principles of buried pipe design, construc- tion and installation. The Resource Book provides extensive source information on where to go for more details on all of the issues presented in the video.
