Italian term or phrase: generatrice superiore del tubo
Has anyone ever heard of this term?
Here is the context
L'interramento della tubazione, misurato tra la generatrice superiore del tubo ed il livello del terreno, deve essere almeno pari a 600 mm.

I take it as the top/upper part of the pipe line - can someone confirm, or give me a better translation/interpretation?

crown of the pipe
Explanation:
I spent a lot of time researching this some time ago. Try googling the term. The term can also be translated as chord when it refers to trusses.

And yes, it does refer to the uppermost portion of an underground pipe.
