The proper use of pipeline materials and design is obviously paramount in the private and public works sectors. The introduction and proper use of new piping materials and design procedures demand thorough evaluation. A significant amount of laboratory testing and observations of in-ground burial performance has been accomplished and is documented in these proceedings. These new data when properly used should be of use to the designer and the specifications writer. Specific topics include design and performance of buried fiberglass reinforced plastic pipes, design of thin wall reinforced concrete underground structures using dimension ratio, performance of low stiffness plastic pipe in stiff soils, design criteria for buried flexible pipe, and the importance of relative soil-pipe stiffness in plastic pipe design.
