Hi everyone, So I am trying to study how different types of slurry will deflect a PVC pipe. The first step in my understanding is to reduce distributed load into a resultant force. I'm assuming that the resultant force will be placed in the center of the pipe (assuming a homogeneous slurry), but the magnitude eludes me. It's a 31in pipe, 4in diameter and the slurry (simple for the sake of calculation) is water @ 75F. The PVC is schedule 40, although that would matter for the reduction of the distributed load. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?
