Loads on Buried Pipe: A 100-Year Old Empirical Formula Still Holds Water

The evaluation of the effects of surcharge loads on buried pipes can be addressed using the Iowa formula. This formula, over 100 years old, matches the results of state-of-the-art finite element analysis with pipe-soil interaction. In 1913, Iowa State University professors Marston and Anderson published the results of their experimental work on the resistance of […]
