In some cases, traffic load are effected pipelines so in this study, effects of truckload on the buried pipeline were done with numerical and experimental methods. In numerical method, model is assumed half extreme and length of them are considered extreme, mathematically. For performing of numerical method, 3D model were used in Plaxis-3D software. For comparison and checking of results, Experimental model was prepared and with using of electrical strain gages and computer, results of experimental model were recorded. Results show experimental and finite element models are compatible. In continue, effects of other parameters are studied with Plaxis-3D software.
