Serial Information: Journal of the Pipeline Division, 1964, Vol. 90, Issue 1, Pg. 21-32

Document Type: Journal Paper


A practical design method of calculating flexible steel pipe wall thickness is presented. The method is used for determining thicknesses of pipe when the external loads are greater than the internal loads thus controlling the design. Tables, of earth loads, H-20 line loads and pipe deflections are included for steel pipe diameters ranging from 24 in. to 150 in., and with earth covers of from 4 ft to 15 ft.
