    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.
