This paper presents a design procedure for buried pipelines subjected to both strikeslip and reverse strike-slip faults after modifying some of the assumptions used previously. Based on the analysis results, this paper also discusses the design criteria for buried pipelines subjected to various fault movement effects. Parametric responses of buried pipeline for various fault movements, angles of crossing, buried depths and pipe diameters are presented.
