Buried Pipe Buckling and Soil Settlement

Join the Program


E-Suite Module

Mick Bouman, M.Sc.

Format: E-Suite

What you'll learn

Analysing a buried piping network? This module will teach you about the buckling load cases to which underground piping is susceptible and the effects of soil settlement.

In this on-demand module, participants will be taken through:

  • Upheaval Pipe Buckling,

  • Ring Type Buckling and allowable buckling pressure,

  • calculation of soil settlement,

  • installation of buried piping,

  • exercise: analysis of a road crossing,

  • exercise: Upheaval Buckling.
