This is positive in the rleaning that lhe pipe has the abilily together with the back-{illing material to cause a horisontal earthpressure lowards lhe side wall of the pipe, which increase the ability of the pipe to carry the load. VERTICAL LOAD ON A BURIED PIPE The important dimensions for a buried pipe are explained in Figure 1. The total vertical load, O, on the buried pipe is the sum o{ 3 different loads. O O Os Qr =Qs+Qr+O",MPa O,v = Total vertical load = Soil load, see Figure 2 = Tralfic load, see Figure 3 = Water load, see Figure 4 The first step is to calculate lhe total vertical load, O, on the pipe. This can be done using the diagrams in Figure 2 - 4. Example 1 Consider a llexible pipe ol PEHD that is to be layed at a depth of 6.0 meter. The ground water level is 4.0 meter below ground level. Determine the totalvertical load on lhe pipe. Figure 2 gives: Figure 3 gives: Figure 4 gives: Qs = 0.021 + 0.075 = 0.096 MPa Or= 0 Q* = 0.020 MPa That is: Q = 0.096 + 0.020 = 0.1 16 MPa Neste Chemicals lnt SA/NV Neste Oy Chemicals l, Avenue de Bile/Bazellaan, Neste Polyeten AB Pr 320 I PoRVoo B.I I40 BRUSTLS sF-06101 Belgium Finland Tel. +32 22 44 42 ll Telex 62270 NCC B Tel. +358 !5 lB712 Telex l72l neste sf 5-444 86 STENUNGSUND Sweden Tei. +45 303 86 000 Telex 2402 nestepe s
