Oct 08, 2013· Pipeline and EPS Cover Displacement Vectors During Faulting Event "The goal of a geofoam cover system on top of a buried pipeline is to reduce the lateral, longitudinal and vertical forces induced on the pipe as the surrounding ground undergoes deformation," explained Terry Meier, geofoam expert at ACH Foam Technologies.

What are the applications for using EPS Geofoam to protect pipelines and utilities? * Protection of buried pipelines – in one major research study EPS was shown to protect a high-strength steel gas transmission pipeline * Dead load reduction on buried utilities * Protection of pipes and culverts – often as part of embankment construction
It discusses the development and verification of an EPS cover/backfill system to protect buried pipelines and other structures from potential rupture caused by permanent ground deformation (e.g., tectonic faulting, subsidence, liquefaction, and landslide).
