Many times the engineer is confronted with the structural design of a concrete encasement for a circular pipeline. The positive and negative moments in the encasement caused by the design loading conditions can be determined, in part, by applying moment distribution around the encasement. A problem arises, however, in determining the carry-over factors and fixed-end moments to be used in the moment distribution calculations.
