Buried pipes are a highly efficient method of transport. In fact, only open channels are less costly to construct. However, the structural mechanics of buried pipes can be complicated, and imprecisions in the properties of the soil envelope are usually too great to justify lengthy, complicated analyses. Designers and engineers need principles and methods that simplify analysis and maximize their knowledge of the pipe's performance and performance limits.
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.

Descrizione libro CRC Press, 1999. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Favoring the fundamentals of engineering mechanics and scientific principles over complex theories, Watkins and Anderson (both in engineering, Utah State U., Logan) provide a tutorial primer for designers of buried pipes -- less costly, less hazardous, and less environmentally offensive than other media of transportation. In 30 well-organized and well-illustrated chapters, they cover all aspects of pipeline engineering from preliminary ring design to the economics of buried pipes and tanks. Includes worked examples and problems to be solved. Appends material on Castigliano's equation, reconciliation of formulas for ring deflection, similitude, a historical sketch of pipeline engineering, stress analysis, and strain energy analysis.
