A 3D nonlinear numerical analysis of buried steel pipes at strike-slip fault crossings


A 3D nonlinear soil-pipe interaction model is presented in this study to calculate the response of steel pipes subjected to strike-slip fault displacements. The generalpurpose finite element analysis program ABAQUS is used to determine the seismic response of high strength steel pipes, as well as for various surrounding soil conditions and diameter to… (More)
