SEISMIC RESPONSE OF HDPE PIPELINE LATERALS

 

Michael O’Rourke

# 2021 Amsterdam

The response of HDPE pipe laterals to seismic hazards are investigated. The hazard considered is Permanent Ground Deformation, specifically nominally uniform ground strain, abrupt offset in the longitudinal direction and abrupt offset in the transverse direction.
