    Abstract

    Soil property requirements for the basic trench and embankment installation conditions are discussed. Characteristics of compacted soils are described and representative stress — strain parameters given. Preliminary values of existing ground stiffness properties are suggested. The applications of these properties for analyzing pipe deflection, wall thrust and buckling strength are indicated.

    Keywords:

    soil properties, stress-strain behavior, strength, compaction, flexible pipe, plastic pipe, Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, bulk modulus, constrained modulus, deflection, buckling, wall thrust
