Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


The paper discusses the simplified and refined analysis methods for buried pipes subjected to a strong earthquake. Effects of soil-structure interaction, pipe embedment, soil layering, material nonlinearity, and ground water table fluctuation are evaluated. A number of real pipe examples are investigated and the results obtained from various analysis methods are compared. Suggestions for modification of the design formulas are made.
