Seismic Performance Analysis of Buried Pipeline
Taking the breakage of the conduit joints caused by seismic wave propagation as main failure mode, seismic performance analysis of the pipeline was performed with wave theory method by considering pipe’s axial deformation. Influencing factors of pipe’s deformation such as seismic wave’s incident angle, shear wave velocity, pipeline’s diameter and wall thickness were deeply discussed. Two different methods for calculating axial deformation transfer coefficient were presented to check pipeline’s seismic deformation.
