Estimating earth loads on buried pipes under axial loading condition: insights from 3D discrete element analysis

found to be the pipe diameter, burial depth, and soil properties. Results of the parametric study were used to develop an expression to estimate the earth pressure coefficient that reflects the dilative ... is the coefficient of earth pressure at-rest and δ is the interface friction angle between the soil and the pipe. Equation (1) has been also recommended by the American Lifeline Alliance [ 3 ] and
