The purpose of this book is to provide non-geotechnical engineers who perform pipeline stress analyses and pipeline design a basic understanding of soil mechanics concepts, terms and principles and how they relate to soil-pipeline interaction. This information will help pipe stress analysts and pipeline designers have meaningful discussions with the geotechnical engineers who provide the project with geotechnical input.
There is sometimes a wide gap in understanding and appreciation on both sides of the technical table; the geotechnical engineers do not understand how pipe stress analyses are performed and what issues are important to the stress and design team, and the stress team may misinterpret the soil properties and strength parameters provided by the geotechnical engineers. This book bridges that gap.
