Calculation of the load from ground transportation for an underground pipeline

Vehicle weight (per axle), tonnes =
Depth of backfilling of the pipeline to the top of the pipe, m =
Diameter of the pipeline, mm =
Pressure on the pipeline from the impact of transport, MPa =
Pressure on the pipeline from ground mass, MPa =
Pressure on the pipeline is general, MPa =

The effect of the transport load is calculated using the pressure distribution in accordance with the Boussinesq theory. The maximum vertical pressure occurs immediately below the load application point.

Calculation of the load from ground transportation for an underground pipeline. This is a simple program for calculating.
