Development of a pipeline surface loading screening process & assessment of surface load dispersing methods
This is the first edition of CSA SPE-225.6, Development of a pipeline surface loading screening process & assessment of surface load dispersing methods.
The purpose of this document is to provide details on the development and implementation of a simplified screening process to assess the effects of surface loads on buried pipelines.
This document is not a consensus product: that is, it is not a Standard, and it has not been formally reviewed or approved by a CSA Technical Committee.
This document was developed by a working group under the auspices of the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA), a voluntary, non-profit industry association representing major Canadian transmission pipeline companies.
CEPA transferred the ownership of this document to CSA Group in November 2021.
