- Upheaval and Uplift check.
- Graphical output of the calculated uplift safety factor; upheaval safety.
- Calculation of settlement of the soil layers below the pipeline.
Pipeline installation in wet soft soil environments may lead to buoyant behaviour of the pipeline. In case of superficial installation the soil cover above the pipeline may be insufficient to withstand the buoyant force of an empty pipeline. D-Geo Pipeline provides an Uplift check and Uplift safety factor chart.
