The paper reports on a study of a theoretical and experimental evaluation of the soil-structure interaction of reinforced concrete pipe buried in both an embankment and a trench full-scale field installation. Extensive sets of experimental measurements were taken during and after the placement of a 5-foot diameter pipe in the field, and these data were used to assess the reliability of a mathematical model for the soil-pipe system, and to quantify the influence of the assumed soil behavior on the response of the system. The variations in the relationships for the mechanical properties of two particular soils were evaluated by comparing the results obtained from four different types of test, together with the associated analysis and method of interpretation for each.
