Optimization of loads having the impact on the pipelines laid in the ground
The optimal load distribution for circular section pipelines is the radial load, evenly distributed over the entire circumference. For such a load pattern, the bending moments disappear, and the only internal forces are the axial forces and the compressive stress induced by them. During the presentation, there will be presented technical possibilities that allow modification of loads distribution and enable their optimization.
