Guide for PVC sewer force mains uses recently developed method for cyclic-fatigue design.
This technical report examines head loss and pumping costs over 100-years for PVC and ductile iron pipe.
Assists engineers to determine PVC pipe wall thickness using expected design values for working pressure, surge pressures (both occasional and recurring) and hydrostatic test pressure based on pipe size and OD regimen.
PVC Pressure Pipe Standards used in reclaimed water applications are summarized.
In 2016 AWWA published the latest edition of its C900 standard for PVC pipe. C900-16 is more complicated than most standards, primarily because it has absorbed the large-diameter sizes previously found in the C905 standard. To help with the transition from two standards in the past to one standard now, the PVCPA has written a 20-page explanatory guide.
Thrust restraint is needed to address changes in diameter or direction. The Thrust Restraint Calculator enables engineers and designers to quickly determine the thrust restraint needs for PVC piping systems. The PVC pipe industry offers a full line of thrust restraint products to meet every project need. Please contact one of our Regional Engineers for specific product and design questions.
