Course Description

In this course you will learn how to analyse a buried piping system. The theoretical backrounds on soil mechanics and soil-pipe interaction are discussed in detail. Exercises and demonstrations of typical piping systems are provided using the pipe stress software CaesarII. Present day design codes for analysing buried piping and typical design mistakes are discussed as well as failure example case studies.
