I have a problem and it consists on placing a square PVC pipe vertically in a trench and surrounding it in concrete, I would like to know how would I calculate the sufficient wall thickness of this pipe and the maximum depth of the trench etc before the pipe would yield to the surrounding pressure of the concrete. I am not sure how the pressure will be distributed within the walls of the trench and how much of concrete head pressure will be acting on the pipe.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone help?
