Buried pipe design vs performance: where we have it right and where we don’t

 Registration is closed for this event
Prof Ian Moore of Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario has been undertaking large scale laboratory testing on buried pipes in order to verify or disprove long established structural design methods. He will be presenting the results of his work for the first time in the UK.


Prof Ian Moore has spent the last 39 years researching the behaviour of buried pipes, undertaking large scale testing in order to better understand their behaviour, and to compare the measured results with predictions of behaviour made by established and new design procedures.  

Trained in Australia, Dr Moore has been Canada Research Chair in Infrastructure Engineering at Queen’s University since 2001. An expert on soil-pipe interaction, pipe mechanics and geotechnical engineering, his more than 300 publications examine buried pipe behaviour related to conventional and trenchless installation of buried water, drainage, and energy pipelines. Both his methods of analysis and experiments undertaken using the unique testing facilities he has developed with colleagues at Queen’s University have contributed to understanding of the strength of new and deteriorated pipe systems, and the interactions between the pipe, the soil, and liners or other components associated with various rehabilitation technologies.

Dr Moore has contributed to North American, Australian and European codes, design and construction practices for culverts, sewers, manholes, liners, and pressure pipe systems. Other activities include editorship of the Canadian Geotechnical Journal and the Canadian Foundation Engineering Manual, Associate Editor positions with the ASCE Journal of Pipeline Engineering Systems and Management, Royal Society Open Science, and work for AASHTO, ASTM, AWWA, CSA, TRB and other professional committees.
