A finite element computer program was adopted and modified to perform static analysis of buried structures. Two separate variable-moduli soil models were used in the code to analyze the response of 6-inch-diameter cylinders having wall thicknesses of 18, 14, and 38 inch when buried to a depth of 9 inches in dry sand and subjected to a static overpressure. The computed results were compared with experimental results obtained from static tests of these cylinders in the Waterways Experiment Station Small Blast Load Generator. Author
