Long Term Testing of Centrifugally Cast Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic Pipes (RIRP)
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....

Buried Fiberglass Pipe Performance and Installation Requirements and Design Calculations in International Standardization
This paper elaborates on a proposed standard covering details of fiberglass pipe buried installation requirements and criteria for selection of pipe stiffness. It also discusses the selection...

Field Testing of 84-Inch-Diameter Plastic Pipe
During the summer of 1981, a research project was initiated to monitor strains and deformation in 84-inch diameter RPM (reinforced plastic mortar) pressure pipe. Three 20-foot (6. 1-m)...

Response of Buried Flexible Plastic Conduits Under Loading
Structural performance of 75 mm and 100 mm diameter plastic conduits embedded in Lloyd clay were examined experimentally in a laboratory soil bin, and numerically by the finite element...

Large Diameter Plastic Pipe Design
This paper presents a rationale for the design of large diameter plastic pipes for gravity flow applications. This procedure, applicable for all plastic pipes, adapts state-of-the-art...

Successful Use of Centrifugally Cast Glassfiber Reinforced Plastic (GRP) Pressure Pipes for Public Works in Sweden
Centrifugally cast GRP pipes were introduced in Sweden 17 years ago for industrial applications mainly as a gravity pipe. The process of pipe manufacturing as well as the pipe itself and...

Design of Non-Pressure Very Flexible Plastic Pipe
There is considerable debate about the correct structural design procedure to be used for very flexible plastic pipe (VFP) - typically glass-fiber reinforced pipe (GRP), reinforced plastic...

Advances in Underground Pipeline Engineering
The field of underground pipeline engineering has undergone a rapid growth during the last two decades. The analysis, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of underground pipelines...

Connection Flexibility and Steel Frames
