This paper covers further development of a method for predicting moments, shears, and stresses in pipe with concrete bedding. Equations are presented along with examples verifying the method. Theory is shown to correlate with photoelastic and finite element analysis. The method is dependent on a minimal bond between pipe and bedding cradle causing them to work as a unit.
