Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Advances in Underground Pipeline Engineering

Abstract: The paper discusses testing of pipe manufactured by centrifugal molding. The tests included external load tests, internal load, hydrostatic internal pressure, and cyclic internal pressure. The tests were aimed at establishing long-term behavior and time-dependent parameters. Study materials, methods and results are discussed. Refs.
