Pipe stresses during earthquakes are closely related to the relative displacement of the ground. Field observation has been carried out to determine ground deformation. Steel pipe is assumed to be buried along the observation line and pipe stresses are calculated from the ground deformation obtained by the field observation. Stresses calculated by the seismic deformation method that has been used for earthquake resistant design in Japan and by dynamic response analysis are compared with those from the observation.
