Thrust restraint design of buried pipelines is dependent on the driving force distribution as well as pipe-soil interaction at the pipe-soil interface, which can be quite complex. The characteristics of the pipe-soil interaction are dependent on the piping configuration, pipe and soil mass properties, and internal and external loading, among other factors. It is generally recognized that a buried pipe has to move against the soil in order to develop maximum aggregate friction, adhesion, and… Expand
