Underground conduits are the backbone of pipeline transportation. In the design of buried pipes, thorough study on behavior of pipes and soil are the utmost necessitate. The objective of the study is to predict the performance of Un-plasticized Poly Vinyl Chloride Pipe of varied diameter commercially available in the market buried at different levels of loose sand backfill. A laboratory model of the trench in the form of tank is made. The experimental test values are validated using the finite element software PLAXIS.
