Abstract:

This study was undertaken 1 to investigate analytically the influence of the relative stiffness between a buried cylinder and the surrounding medium on cylinder deflections, thrusts, and moments 2 to develop design curves from the results of the analysis and 3 to demonstrate the validity of the design curves by comparison with experimental results from different sources.
