For the static calculation of buried pipes, there are various regulations available on an international level. The publications of AWWA, SIA and DWA are important for pipe statics. This article describes the basic procedure for the dimensioning of profiled pipes using the ATV-DVWK-A 127 (Germany) worksheet, as this set of rules also enjoys great international recognition.

The structural engineering calculation of liners in non-permanently stable channels with egg-shaped section could previously only be carried out with very complex and expensive FEM analyzes for each individual case. Now, a new reliable calculation method is available, which is based on a specially developed framework model and can be automated for convenient operation.

Many large interceptor sewers, predominantly installed under public roads, have been in use for over 100 years. They are made of brickwork or compressed concrete and often show serious damage, so that it would seem that long-term stability can no longer be guaranteed. As an alternative to replacing large profiles, various renovation procedures offer significant advantages with respect to investment costs, environmental protection and urban pollution. Depending on the procedure, it may well be possible to extend the service life, to match that of a replacement. However, beforehand, an in-depth study of the current stability and residual load capacity of the existing sewer is required, along with needs-based selection and dimensioning of the renovation procedure. The new standard DWA-A 143-2 serves as a good basis for the necessary static calculations.

Part 1: Determination of the condition and renovation procedure

The large wastewater collectors, which are mainly laid under public roads, have been in operation for more than 100 years. They are made of masonry or stamped concrete and often show such serious damage that lasting stability no longer seems to be guaranteed. As an alternative to a renovation, there are also various renovation methods available for large profiles, which offer clear advantages in terms of investment costs, environmental protection and urban stress.

Depending on the procedure, the extension of the useful life achieved in this way may well correspond to a renewal. The prerequisite is an in-depth investigation of the actual stability or residual capacity of the existing sewer and a needs-based choice and dimensioning of the restoration process. The new work sheet DWA-A 143-2 provides a good basis for the required structural engineering calculations, which are described in detail in Part 2, 3R issue 3/2016.

Part 2: Impacts of the DWA-A 143-2 on liner dimensioning

The large wastewater collectors, which are mainly laid under public roads, have been in operation for over 100 years. They are made of masonry or stamped concrete and often show such serious damage that lasting stability no longer seems to be guaranteed. As an alternative to a renovation, there are also various renovation methods available for large profiles, which offer clear advantages in terms of investment costs, environmental protection and urban stress.

Depending on the procedure, the extension of the useful life achieved in this way can certainly correspond to a renewal. The prerequisite is an in-depth investigation of the actual stability or residual capacity of the existing sewer and a needs-based choice and dimensioning of the restoration process. Part 1 of this technical report (3R issue 1-2/2016) was devoted to the condition assessment and remediation procedures. Part 2 below details the new worksheet DWA-A 143-2, which provides a good basis for the necessary structural engineering calculations.

The preparation of a single structural engineering calculation is usually not sufficient for the renovation of sewers and pipes that are no longer permanently stable (Host Pipe Condition III) with lining and assembly methods. Especially with changing cover heights and/or a fluctuating groundwater level, it is not possible to predict the exact combinations beforehand that will lead to the greatest stresses on the liner and the old pipe without more precise calculations. In addition, any annular gap present between liner and old pipe can either be favorable or unfavorable. For this reason, this report presents a systematic verification concept for the Host Pipe Condition III, which is already integrated in the new M127-2 compute module of the IngSoft EasyPipe software.

The consideration of loads outside the current standards poses challenges to the providers of the structural engineering calculations for underground pipelines, duct structures and civil engineering projects. It is examined whether the Dimensioning Aircraft (DAC, in German: Bemessungsflugzeug BFZ) specified in 1970 cover the stresses from current passenger aircrafts (Boeing 747, Airbus A340 and A380).

The widespread approach of substitute surface loads from road traffic for underground pipelines and manhole structures will be replaced in the foreseeable future: It is replaced by the load models of the DIN Fachbericht 101 ("DIN Technical Report") for bridges, which focuses on individual wheel loads. The HGV 60 (SLW 60) according to DIN 1072 and the Load Model 1 according to DIN Fachbericht 101 are compared. A sample investigation of the soil pressures as well as the load distribution for the Load Model 1 takes place.

The 3rd edition of the ATV-DVWK work sheet A 127 (structural engineering calculation of sewers and pipes) contains some obvious changes. In practical application, this results in additional implications that are not explicitly mentioned in the work sheet: For example, the use of material characteristics, obtained from long-term or short-term values, weighted in relation to the earth loads to the live loads necessitates separate stress analyzes for the individual load cases.
