    Abstract

    The paper presents the results of preliminary tests that were conducted to investigate the possible use of geogrids for increasing the uplift resistance of buried pipelines. The results of the preliminary experimental investigations suggest that the uplift capacity of a pipeline section can be increased quite significantly by the incorporation of geogrids at the crown region of the pipeline in an advantageous and practicable configuration.
