Evaluating the movement of active faults on buried pipelines

Y Parish


During the earthquake, a buried pipeline may be experienced extreme loading that is the result of the relatively large displacement of the Earth along the pipe. Large movements of ground could occur by faulting, liquefaction, lateral spreading, landslides, and slope failures. Since the pipelines are widely spread, and in some areas they pass necessarily the fault areas so it is important to study improvement of pipelines in areas with faults. In this paper, it has been preceded to the active movement of the fault on buried pipelines.
