Abstract: Design and analysis of thrust restraint for a buried continuous pressure pipe is essentially a pipe–soil interaction (PSI) problem
regardless of pipe materials and restraint methods. In practice, thrust block and restrained joints are the most commonly used restraint methods,
and dual restraint systems using both methods can be found in many pipeline projects even though they are treated independently.
However, no analytical procedure is available to analyze the performance of such dual restraint systems.
