Load DissipationAs promised, here is the second part of this two-part blog series. In the first section, I discussed the standard live load design vehicles and presented the design methodology of these vehicles. In the second part of this series, I will discuss how the live load dissipates, and how to determine the live load pressure at various

For this two-part series, we’re going to delve into live loading. A majority of what will be covered in this article goes into design methodology. Additional detail will be included in the follow up, so make sure to check back for that second article. Standard design live load vehicles on corrugated pipe can be mostly broken down into the following

WHICH VEHICLE IS OF GREATER CONCERN TO THE INSTALLED PIPE? A highway truck weighing 72,000 lbs or a heavy-duty modular trailer weighing 600,000 lbs? If you guessed the highway truck, then you are correct. In this particular case, the reason is the increased number of axles and the contact area that the load is distributed upon. Due to the 600,000
