Strains Induced by Combined Loading in Buried Pressurized Fiberglass Pipe
In 1983 Owens Corning Fiberglas and Utah State University collaborated on a study of combined strain behavior of fiberglass pipe to quantify the bending strain reduction as a function...

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...

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...

Recent Developments in Hydrologic Instrumentation
The availability of space-age materials and implementation of state-of-the-art electronics is making possible the recent developments of hydrologic instrumentation. Material developments...

Nine Years' Service with Deep Polymer Impregnation
A test installation of deep polymer impregnation was applied to a heavily traveled bridge deck in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in 1975. The deep polymer impregnation process involved drying...

State of the Art in Concrete-Polymer Materials
Concrete-polymer materials represent a relatively new technology in the construction industry. In some cases polymers are combined with portland cement concrete and, in other cases, polymers...

Developments in New and Existing Materials
Materials engineering has emerged as an identifiable professional practice within civil engineering in the past few years. Although materials engineering is not new, the concept that this...

Structural Design, Cementitious Products, and Case Histories
The papers in this book represent deverse topics in structural engineering. In design of beam-columns by the AISC interaction equations, it is demonstrated that an inadequacy exists when...
