In this paper our Institute has done the research on the reinferced concrete pipelines. The study includes the review on the development of the theory of thin cylindrical shell and performing the full scale test on pipe up to the collapse with different boundry conditions.

The result of the research done by us has shown that the behavior of buried concrete pipelines under the imposed loading can be better treated by the non-linearity for which the strength of the concrete pipe can have further extension over the yielding point which is still a little bit far from the ultimate strength of the reinforced concrete pipe.
