The aim of this paper is to introduce a robust methodology for the analytical calculation of strains in flexible buried pipelines due to surface point-source blasts.
Reference: International Journal of Impact Engineering 34 (2007) 1683-1704
Existing analytical methods for the stress analysis of buried steel pipelines at crossings with active strike-slip faults depend on a number of simplifications, which limit their applicability and may even lead to non-conservative results. The analytical methodology ...

In this paper a 3-D thin shell strain analysis has been presented, regarding long cylindrical underground structures (buried pipelines and tunnels) subjected to seismic shear (S) wave excitation.
Reference: Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering 26 (2006) 909-921
the following important issues, concerning the Athens, Greece earthquake of 07/09/1999, are addressed in this article: (a) the principal direction of ground shaking, (b) the accuracy of pure seismological methods for site characterization, (c) the effect of ...
