Abstract

 Underground conduits voids or buried pipes have been since ancient times for carrying oil water gas sewage slurry and similar materials from one location to an- other. A conduit placed in a relatively narrow ditch is known as a ditch conduit and it is often covered with lo- cally available unreinforced earth fill. Designing a BURIED CONDUIT covered with granular soil backfill requires that the vertical load acting on the conduit is estimated. A vertical load that develops above a buried pipe/ BURIED CONDUIT often differs from free-field stress. The ARCHING action of a granular soil mass overlying BURIED CONDUITs can reduce the VERTICAL PRESSURE on them. Reduction in the load on the conduit occurs due to mobilization of the shear resistance along the walls of the ditch during settlement of the backfill within the ditch. However in some cases designers need more reduction in pressure acting over the conduit which is possible by placing a GEOSYNTHETIC LAYER within the soil backfill. This paper represents an analytical method to evaluate stress re- duction on a BURIED CONDUIT reinforced with a single re- inforcement layer. VERTICAL PRESSURE acting on the BURIED CONDUIT is estimated due to the simultaneous effects of soil ARCHING action and the GEOSYNTHETIC LAYER. A nu- merical example to evaluate VERTICAL PRESSURE over the conduit is explained. The effects of various parameters such as tensile stiffness of REINFORCEMENT elastic modu- lus of soft material burial depth of conduit on the pres- sure over the conduit and efficiency are investigated and discussed. Comparison results of reinforced and unreinforced backfill shows the significant effect of re- inforcement in decreasing stress acting on the conduit. This reduction is more highlighted when the depth of the BURIED CONDUIT is increased. Comparisons of act- ing pressure on the conduit with the present approach shows satisfactory agreement with those obtained from other studies under the same conditions irrespective of unreinforced and reinforced backfill.
